inspired by my last blog entry, the following is a slightly altered excerpt from the satir model, giving a model of how to help people deal with feelings.
behaviour: what action did you take when you were angry?
coping: how were you using anger to cope better?
feelings: were there other feelings associated with feeling angry?
feeling about feeling: how do you feel about being angry?
perceptions: what words, beliefs and images are attached to your angry feelings?
expectations: when you were angry, what expectations or hopes did you have that were not fulfilled?
yearnings: underneath your expectations, what did you yearn or long for? how could you express these yearnings differently?
self: what was your level of self esteem a) prior to being agry, b) during the anger, c) following the anger?
