Anger Warning Signs
Anger Warning Signs
This worksheet is intended to be used in the beginning anger management treatment to help educate clients about their physical and behavioral responses to anger. We recommend taking time helping the client identify their earliest warning signs of anger that might be less obvious and more difficult to recognize.

Worksheet copy reads: "Sometimes anger can affect what you say or do before you even recognize the feeling. This is especially true if you feel angry all the time. You may become so used to the feeling of anger that you don't notice it, sort of like how you can hear the sound of an air condition or the humming of a refrigerator but block it from your mind. Even if you aren't thinking about your feelings, they influence how you behave. The first step to managing anger is learning to recognize your personal warning signs that tell you how you feel."
My Fears
My Fears
This children's anxiety worksheet will help prompt the client to identify, describe, and address their fears. Children are asked to list their fears, describe their thoughts about the fears, identify where in their body they sense the feeling, and finally to create a plan for dealing with fear.
