Coping With Anger Worksheet
Kids with anger issues can be taught helpful coping skills that reduce tension, stress, anxiety, and avoid explosive behaviors. This worksheet allows a child to write down some of the things that make them feel angry and describe their feelings, thoughts, and behaviors resulting from that anger.
After a child expresses their anger in writing, it instructs them to identify coping skills they are willing to use from different categories — Relaxation, Distraction, Movement, and Thinking. As a parent, teacher, social worker, or mental health professional, you can ask them to demonstrate a skill and even do it with them. For example, taking deep breaths or counting from 1 to 100.
My students were really engaged and report “this helps me before I get in trouble”.
