Emotional Thermometer (Poster)


How safe are we feeling? What does that look like on a scale of 0-100 degrees? And what can we then do to manage our feelings, and perhaps reduce the temperature?

That’s the concept behind this ‘Emotional Thermometer’ poster.

Includes a blank template so that you can fill in your own ideas of what heightened emotions look like uniquely to you, and your own coping strategies for them.

This is a free downloadable PDF.

This resource comes from the ‘Trauma Survivors’ Resource Guide‘ alongside numerous others, but is available here as a handy standalone poster.

There is both a full-colour and low-ink print-friendly version, as well as a blank template which can be used to create your own unique-to-you resource.
