  Anger Control, developed by John F. Taylor, PhD

 

Play the ACE of Anger

 

Adapt to the situation

  • I create my anger
  • I can use it any way I want

              to hurt others or self
              to help others or self

  • Anger warns me that I have a problem to resolve
  • I can change my approach so I won't be so frustrated

 

Confront means to talk

  • I can use the energy from anger to
  • tell them to please stop
  • tell them what I want them to please do instead
  • tell them how I will support their change
  • talk to an adult


Escape means

 

Deciding to leave the situation: talk to an adult first

 

Avoid being RUDE

 

Repeated useless venting

  • pillow punching
  • rehearsing the anger
  • not confronting


Under-expressing the anger

 

Dumping on others, pets, etc.

 

Exaggerating often results in loss of control
