The Cycle of Anger

Show your clients how their anger can be triggered, and how it escalates, using the Cycle of Anger printout. This anger worksheet uses the CBT model to explain how anger grows from irrational thoughts, and leads to a difficult-to-break cycle of growing frustration.

The Cycle of Anger diagram depicts anger as beginning with a trigger, which leads to negative thoughts, emotions, physical symptoms, and a behavioral response. This tool can be useful alongside a thought log, as a group conversation piece, or as a relatable way to explain the CBT model to clients who struggle with anger.
