How to use the Impulse Control Log

The impulse control log was designed by S.A.F.E. ALTERNATIVES® as an effective tool for the identification, understanding and management of self-destructive impulses, helping self-injurers and their therapists to identify patterns of self-injury. The goal of this log is to put a window of opportunity (e.g. time to think) between an impulse and an action. It can help the user challenge irrational thoughts and identify feelings as well as allow for the healthy expression of that feeling as opposed to choosing self-destructive behavior. An excellent resource for schools and private practitioners. The Impulse control log, Productive Risk log, Confrontation log, Negative Thinking log, Dilemma log, Discussion Issues log, and so much more be be found in the S.A.F.E. Alternatives App. Available in Itunes and Google Play.
