Introduction & Theoretical Background

Uncontrolled feelings of anger can be accompanied by impulsive, aggressive, irrational, or otherwise unhelpful responses. The Anger Decision Sheet is an anger management training tool that first helps to identify personal triggers for anger. Once these have been identified clients can be encouraged to pre-plan helpful 'letting go' or 'assertive' responses. This worksheet was originally submitted by Jason Roscoe.
