8 Myths About Anger Anger is inherited
Anger automatically leads to aggression You must be aggressive to get what you want Venting anger is always desirable

9 Anger Meter A simple way to monitor your anger is to use a 1 to 10 scale called the anger meter. A score of 1 on the anger meter represents a complete lack of anger or a total state of calm, whereas 10 represents an angry and explosive loss of control that leads to negative consequences.

10 Events That Trigger Anger
When you get angry, it is because you have encountered an event in your life that has provoked your anger Many times, specific events touch on sensitive areas These sensitive areas or “red flags” usually refer to long-standing issues that can easily lead to anger

11 Cues To Anger A second important way to monitor anger is to identify the cues that occur in response to the anger-provoking event These cues serve as warning signs that you have become angry and that your anger is escalating Cues can be broken down into four cue categories: physical, behavioral, emotional, and cognitive (or thought) cues

12 Weekly Check In Procedure To Monitor Anger
What was the highest number you reached on the anger meter during the past week? What was the event that triggered your anger? What cues were associated with the anger-provoking event? What strategies did you use to avoid reaching a 10 on the anger meter?
