Anger Management Art Activity

Here is another activity we frequently use at Provo Canyon Behavioral Hospital.  It's great for lower functioning groups!


Anger Management handout (if applicable)
Colored pencils, markers, crayons, etc.
Blank Paper

Give each patient a blank piece of paper.  Have them draw what anger looks like, feels like, etc. for them personally.  Afterwards, have patients share their drawings with the group.

On the back of the paper, have patients draw or write the answer to the following questions: 1). How have I dealt with anger in the past and 2). How I want to deal with anger in the future.

Discuss the patients responses.  Go over the anger management handout and talk about different coping skills patients can use to deal with anger.

  1. The truth is that most anger management programs offer shallow solutions like, “count to 10” and “take a deep breath.” That is just not enough for someone struggling with anger. Most anger management counselors do not understand the science of anger, how anger works in your brain, and what really happens to make your angry. Since they don’t understand this, they give obsolete and incomplete guidance.
