CHILDHOOD ANGER SELF-TEST

Childhood Anger Self-Test

This self-test is intended to help you reflect upon your anger issues in new ways. Don’t think too hard about the answers. There are no right answers. If you aren’t sure, go with your first guess.
As a child…

1. Was it bad or wrong for you to be angry?
2. Did you feel disrespected?
3. Did your parents show disrespect for each other?
4. Did your parents yell or criticise when they were angry?
5. Did your parents withdraw when they got angry?
6. Did you experience rage or violence?
7. Did you feel criticised?
8. Were your parents not listened to?
9. Did you have difficulty getting along with your parents and siblings?
10. Were you judged by your parents?
11. Did you lose a sibling or parent?
12. Did you feel unsafe, physical or emotionally, in your parents’ home?
13. Sid you need to be successful?
14. Did you think anger and rage are the same thing?

As an adult…

15. Do you still think anger and rage is the same thing?
16. Do you still feel hurt by people’s judgment?
17. Are you angry with yourself when you can’t express yourself well?
18. Do you still feel criticised?

Three or more “yes” answers indicate an anger pattern and you may have an anger problem.

An anger problem is any anger-related behavior (verbal, physical, or emotional) that hurts you or someone else.

Questions and Answers

How do I become a group member?

You simply turn up; there is no appointment or referral necessary. The group is completely confidential and there is no registration process of who attends.

Will I have to tell the group about my experiences?

No. There is no pressure to talk about anything you don’t feel comfortable with. Some group members simply listen to other peoples’ experiences around anger and offer their support. It is the choice of the individual member when they are ready to talk.

Can I just turn up?

Although the group operates on a ‘drop in’ basis, we do ask that where possible members arrive by 7.30pm and stay for the full session in order to avoid disruption and show respect to others who may be talking about difficult situations. However, if you do need to leave earlier than 9pm, please inform the group on arrival.

Tell me more about the group ‘facilitator’

The group is facilitated by Margaret Hall who has personally experienced issues around anger. Margaret is qualified Counsellor and Adult Teacher. She is also an EFT Practitioner, Hypnotherapist, and Life Coach.

I feel quite nervous about coming along for the first time.

It is natural to feel nervous, but please try to be reassured that everyone feels like this initially. The group is friendly and supportive and will offer you a warm welcome. Please remember that everyone in the group has a personal understanding of anger and the issues involved.

Will I have to attend every session?

Not at all. Some people attend the group as and when they need support and some attend regularly. It is the personal choice of the group member when they wish to attend.
