Announcing The New Anger Thermometer App

wipitupWip It Up of Winnipeg is proud to announce the launch of Anger Thermometer, a new Application (APP) available on iTunes. The Anger Thermometer App is a simple and practical tool to help people identify and regulate their feelings.

Everyone feels angry sometimes, but many people struggle to express their anger in healthy ways. The Anger Thermometer App teaches people how to identify, understand, and control their feelings and emotions. The Anger Thermometer App is ideally suited for teachers, counselors, therapists, clinicians, parents, and others who want to help individuals understand their feelings and learn ways to control their emotions and behavior.

Wip it Up has seen great success and has developed a loyal following with their first App Speech Button and they are expanding on this success with launch of the Anger Thermometer App. Wip It Up was created in response to the need for ready-made, easy-to-use apps that are expertly designed by experienced clinicians. Their mission is to help children and young adults with special needs to communicate, regulate their thoughts and emotions, and enjoy a better quality of life.

“As practicing school clinicians, we recognize the need for practical, effective, and time-efficient interventions for youth with anger problems. The Anger Thermometer is one such strategy that uses the analogy of a thermometer to help children and people with special needs understand their level of anger. Once aware of how they are feeling, they can use strategies to change the way they are feeling to a more positive temperature. The Anger Thermometer app is a productive and fun way to learn anger management skills.” stated Carole Conyers, Partner; Wip it Up.

Anger Thermometer is a versatile “anger management” tool (also known as self-regulation). It can be used to teach the concept of “feelings” and ways to manage those feelings. It can be used as a visual aid to help children express their current emotional state. We have also included helpful tips and clinical support information right in the app so that people who want to explore this Anger Thermometer strategy can enhance their understanding of the ways in which it can be used.” stated Nancy Clarke-Shippam, Partner, Wip It Up.

The Anger Thermometer App is currently available on iTunes at a price of $1.99. Anger Thermometer is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iTouch devices running iOS 4.0 or later.
