Hope4Families June 16, 2022

When feeling angry a few basic anger management coping skills can help. The following are the six major coping skills for more effective anger management:

  • Realize and accept that you are angry.

  • Breathe deeply several times and do not react immediately.

  • Visualize a calming scene, or remember a coping statement (see Module 6 for coping statements).

  • Think about what may happen if you lose control of your anger.

  • Ask yourself the Big Question: “What do I need right now to be OK, and to be healthy in the long term?”

  • Do something positive with your angry energy.
