The A-B-C-D model, created by Albert Ellis, is viewed worldwide as incredible treatment to defeat outrage the board issues.
- An (Activation Agent) − The circumstance that triggers your displeasure.
- B (Believing) − How you decipher the initiating occasion.
- C (Consequences) − This is your emotions and activities because of your conviction.
- D (Dispute) − "Questioning" is checking with convictions on the off chance that they are sensible or only a fabrication of your misshaped creative mind. This is huge in Anger Management.
Example of the A-B-C-D Model
An (Activation Agent)
You're strolling down the steps and someone slams into you and takes off without saying 'sorry'
You think, "Everyone is so wild these days; they treat others like bugs."
You notice that your muscles are tense, your pulse is high, and you have an inclination that you need to hit the controlling wheel. You lower your window and holler a swearword out at the other driver.
You could state to yourself − "Perhaps he had some crisis… most likely not, however you never know; this is life."
Questioning your silly conviction with this sort of objective self-talk diffuses outrage and quiets you down.
