ANGER ON MY MIND

Emotional Vocabulary words Pt 2

Posted on: June 20, 2007

One of my clients has been learning to perceive, identify and name (PIN) his emotions. He chose from a list of 175 emotional vocabulary words the words which best fit his emotions. it turned our that he circled more than 50. When he completed this exercise it revealed that the felt belittled, attached. blamed, controlled, disconnected, distant, hopeless… This client was so surprised to see that his emotions could have been described in so many words.

This exercise revealed that much of his anger was fueled by a deep sense of discontent-it had noting to do with work, wife or children despite the fact that he lashed out at them daily. He also revealed that the emotional vocabulary exercise gave his feeling names and context. No longer was it a confusing mix of  undifferentiated emotions.

This kind of exercise is vital to true anger management. Anger is a secondary emotion and therefore those with chronic anger must become more emotionally intelligence to perceive and meet needs before they become inappropriate anger. To learn more about how we incorporate emotional intelligence into our programs call us at 704-804-0841 today.
