Anger Diary

worksheet

Before successfully managing anger, many clients will first need to develop the ability to recognize their temper before it has reached explosive levels. One common and effective strategy for improving emotional awareness is by recording relevant events in an Anger Diary. This task may be challenging the first time around, so we suggest that you practice completing this worksheet in session using examples or events from the client's past.

The Anger Diary works similarly to a CBT thought log. Your client will be asked to record what triggered their anger, any warning signs that could have tipped them off about their anger, how they responded, and the outcome of the event.
