Anger Management Session 3

Posted by: Dr. Justin D'Arienzo, Psy.D., ABPP


Session 3 Exercises

Materials Needed: small notebook & pen or computer tablet; stopwatch or clock.

Over the next few days, practice utilizing a strategy learned in this session to manage your anger. List three of your most recent episodes of anger, identify the cues experienced, and then identify the strategy that you utilized.

Continue to rate your anger level on the Anger Meter over the next few days.

Additionally, I would like you to practice deep breathing exercises for five minutes per day and during times you feel stressed. I would like you to reflect that while doing the exercise you are able to noticeably calm your stress and change your physiological response. The goal of this exercise is to recondition your responses. If you practice this daily and in times of stress you will be a calmer and more relaxed person.
