Anger

Anger Iceberg
Anger is what we all see. When someone is angry, it is obvious by the look in the person's eyes, the clinched fists, sweat on the brow, and loud voice...if not more. What is causing that anger? This handout looks at the feelings that cause a person to be angry. Once those feelings are identified, anger often dissipates.

Anger Log
This log is great for monitoring your anger to see if your anger is improving or perhaps if you even have an anger problem. Track your anger for a week and you might be surprised about what you find!


Anxiety

Coping Statements
I should not be this anxious. Everybody is looking at me. Oh no, my anxiety is going to get out of control!! These are all examples of how you can cause your own anxiety. This handout is a list of things you can tell yourself to keep your anxiety from getting out of hand.

Autogenic (self hypnosis) Training
People are often suspicious of self hypnosis. This is a fantastic relaxation technique and you don't even need to stare at a swinging pocket watch! Give this one a try, especially when you are trying to go to sleep.

Guided Imagery
Here is another fantastic relaxation technique to try when you are able to take a brief break from a stressful situation or when you are trying to go to sleep.

CBT Hook
A common statement I hear is, "I don't know where my panic attacks come from!!" There is always a cause to panic and anxiety--You just might not realize it. Take a look at this handout to see how there is a long chain of events before an actual panic attack sets in.

Trying to change someone else is probably the worst thing you can do. It is even worse if you use force or threats in order to get your point across. You are only in control of yourself. Take a look at this handout that is based on Choice Theory. How many deadly habits do you use on a daily basis?

Domestic Violence
Are you in an abusive relationship or trying to figure out if you are? Take a look at this handout which shows different ways an abuser will use power and control to psychologically and/or physically abuse their partner. No one deserves to be treated this way.
