Anger control training
Anger Control Training

  • Triggers

  • Cues

  • Anger Reducers

  • Reminders


  • Every conflict situation has an activator (A). We call these triggers.

  • The trigger is what arouses your anger.

  • Triggers can be external or internal.

External and internal triggers
External and Internal Triggers

  • External Trigger

    • An external trigger is something done by one person that makes another person angry; verbal or nonverbal.

    • Example: Someone bumps into you at the store, a stranger is staring at you, a car cuts you off in traffic.

  • Internal Trigger

    • An internal trigger is what you say to yourself to after an external trigger. These thoughts combine with external triggers to escalate your anger.

    • Example: “He did that on purpose”, “What does she think she is looking at?”, “If you are in such a hurry, you should have left sooner, idiot!”

  • Cues are physical signs that let you know you are angry.

  • Examples: muscle tension, knots in your stomach, clenched fists, teeth grinding or a pounding heart

  • What cues does your body give you when you are angry?

  • Complete the “Cues” grid in your folder

Anger reducers
Anger Reducers

  • Using an anger reducer will help lower your arousal levels and increase self control and personal power.

  • Anger reducers can be a first step in using new behaviors that give you greater self control and more time to respond effectively.

Anger Reducers

  • Deep Breathing

    • Deep breathing means taking a few slow, deep breaths to which you pay full attention to.

    • This can help you make a more controlled response in a pressure situation.

    • Deep breathing can reduce tension by relieving physical symptoms of tension.

    • Inhale for 4 counts, then exhale for 4 counts.

  • Counting Backward

    • Counting backward is a way of reducing tension and increasing personal power.

    • Counting backward lowers your arousal level and gives you time to think about how to respond.

    • Count backward silently at an even pace.

    • If appropriate, turn away from the anger provoking person or situation.

  • Pleasant Imagery

    • Imagine yourself in a peaceful scene.

    • Think of scenes you find peaceful and relaxing.

    • Go through all five senses and focus on the experience of each sense in your scene.

    • “You are lying on a beach. The sun is warm. There is a slight breeze that moves your hair. You can smell the salt in the air. You hear seagulls in the distance.”


  • Self instructional statements or positive self talk used to help increase success in pressure situations of all types.

  • Reminders can be very helpful in situations where you must try very hard to keep calm.

  • Complete the “Reminders” grid in your folder

Hassle Log-Sample Conflict

Yesterday morning at the grocery store, someone bumped into me with their cart. I was pretty angry because I didn’t have a good morning and that just made it worse. I yelled “Watch where you’re going!” He just walked away.
