Hi, my name's John Bosworth I'm a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Saint Pete, Florida. I'd like to talk to you a little bit about how to take an anger test. Anger is probably one of the most prevalent emotions or emotional disorders that we see, but there's very little research and very little in the way of actually helping people deal with it successfully. Cognitive behavioral and rational motive behavior therapy is a very successful way of dealing with anger because it helps us look at the irrational beliefs and underlying assumptions that actually create the anger. But, in taking an anger test what we want to do is maybe consult some of the self help shelfs of the bookstore, and look at some of the titles up there preferably by somebody that's a cognitive behavioral therapist or a rational motive behavioral therapist and find out maybe some of the, they usually have like a twenty or twenty five item questionnaire that may help you access whether the anger that you're experiencing or having difficulty with is you know, is causing enough problems to warrant some treatment, and basically what you want to do is find out is it causing problems, physical problems, high blood pressure, increased tension, headaches, blurred vision, or is it you know, is it kind of causing problems more in your daily life, are you having trouble in relationships, are you yelling at your kids more than you would like to, so try to access the different areas, whether it's personal, or whether it's social relationships and get them a better perspective on what types of negative consequences you're actually enduring because of your anger. And, also if you feel that it is a problem, consult of course a mental health professional or somebody that's qualified to help you learn better ways of managing your anger, or more effective ways of dealing with frustration in your life. My name's John Bosworth and we're looking at ways to take an anger test.
