Anger warning signs are clues our bodies give us, indicating that anger is starting to grow. These clues include physical symptoms, thoughts, and actions, such as turning red in the face, sweating, becoming argumentative, or becoming fixated on the source of anger. By learning to identify anger warning signs, clients can start to catch their anger early, while it's still easy to manage.
In the Anger Warning Signs + Anger Thermometer video, Woody Schuldt, LMHC introduces the concept of anger warning signs, and teaches clients how to use an anger thermometer to identify their own warning signs. To learn more about the anger thermometer technique, check out our guide for clinicians, along with our anger thermometer worksheet.
