Viral Marketing Propels Anderson & Anderson to the Top in Coaching for “Disruptive Physicians”

Marketing experts assert that the most effective marketing strategy for service businesses is to consistently provide excellent services. Competence almost automatically leads to word of mouth marketing from satisfied customers. Anderson & Anderson has taken the word of mouth marketing concept to a new high in the area of Executive Coaching/Anger Management for Disruptive Physicians.

If you enter the keywords: anger management for physicians, executive coaching for disruptive physicians, or coaching for physicians, Anderson & Anderson will come up number one on all search engines. We have earned our place at the top by being the first provider in the nation to develop a specific curriculum, with a non-psychiatric assessment component, client workbook, DVDs, posters and ancillary training material designed exclusively for “disruptive physicians,” as defined by the Joint Commission on the Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). Other similar programs are either modified anger management classes for drug addicts or criminal court mandated defendants; while, some programs are actually psychiatric treatment centers for mentally impaired physicians.

 The Anderson & Anderson Executive Coaching/Anger Management for Disruptive Physicians program was originally developed at the request of Dr. Willie Williams, who was an administrator at Tenet Health Care of Dallas at the time. The goal was to tailor a program specifically for “disruptive physicians,” excluding mandatory substance abuse of psychiatric assessment, which can prove damaging to a physician’s career. In addition, the program was to focus on skill enhancement, rather than counseling or psychotherapy,

Therefore, the Anderson & Anderson curriculum is, in essence, a skill enhancement based intervention model designed to enhance one’s skills in the areas of: emotional intelligence, assertive communication, empathy, self-awareness, self-control, social awareness and relationship management. The comprehensive, validated assessment instruments determine the participants level of functioning in all of the areas mentioned above. Subsequent coaching concentrates on the areas in which the client scores in the deficit or average range.

In recognition of the busy schedules of physicians, our services are available either at our Los Angeles office, or on-site anywhere in the nation. The program is twelve hours over a two day period, followed by phone contacts bi-monthly with post-tests over a six month period. In contrast to university based programs, our intervention is offered on a confidential individual basis.

Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Certification Training Beats Expectations

Last week’s 40 hour Anger Management Facilitator Training was filled to capacity. Late arriving participants had to be turned away.  In spite of the economy or perhaps because of the down economy, the need for anger management has dramatically increased worldwide.

Among those participating in this training were a Clinician from Nevada Behavior Health Care, two counselors from an organization which has the contract to provide anger management for inmates at Los Angeles County’s Twin Towers Jail as well as the Jail at Lynwood, CA.

The Training Coordinator for the Ontario Canada Bureau Prisons was in attendance as well representatives from the Alameda County California Probation Department. In addition, Psychologists, Marriage Counselors, Substance Abuse Counselors two Executive Coaches from California, New Mexico and Arizona were active participants in this training.

All of those in attendance expressed satisfaction with the training and most immediately joined the American Association of Anger Management Providers and pledged support of anger as a lifestyle issue rather than a pathological condition

Anger as a Symptom of Depression in African American Men

While anger is not listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Nervous and Mental Disorders, it is often a prominent symptom of clinical depression, especially in African American men. According to Dr. David Satcher, former U.S. Surgeon General, “African American men who suffer from depression are far less likely to be diagnosed for depression and therefore less likely to receive treatment than Caucasian men.”

The stigma associated with counseling or psychotherapy makes the acknowledgement of depression in African American men unacceptable. Of the common symptoms associated with depression, anger is the only symptom that makes the sufferer feel strong and powerful. This is one of the reasons that the expressions of angry feelings in African American men are easier than feelings of inadequacy, low self-esteem, or persistent sadness.

The unfortunate consequence of the failure to appropriately address depression in African American men is the disproportionate number of person or property directed violent offences among this population. Many African American men and adolescent boys are diverted from counseling or psychotherapy for depression, to the criminal justice system with mandated anger management, intervention, or incarceration.

Anger management is not a substitute for psychiatric treatment, psychotropic medication, or psychotherapy. Therefore, all professional anger management providers should determine during the assessment if an evaluation for depression is also indicated.

Executive Coaching; A Powerful Force For Change

Are we experiencing a renaissance? For many centuries, clinicians have focused to a large degree on how to cure the mentally ill through the identification and reduction of undesirable symptoms. They have accomplished this objective primarily through administering medication or providing psychotherapy, in addition to many other valuable approaches.  In fact, modern clinicians have become quite adept at treating mental illness, owing to technological advances and access to extensive bodies of research. Does that mean the job is done for clinicians and their patients? I would argue that, now more than ever, people require more than medical/psychiatric treatment, they need developmental treatment.

 Those in the position to provide developmental treatment/positive psychology are some of the same people who provide medical treatment (i.e. mental health professionals with formal psychological training); however, there are many others taking an entirely different approach to the understanding of human behavior, that are contributing in valuable ways. Their objectives surpass the reduction or eradication of symptoms, and instead, focus more on the increasingly important area of human development i.e., self-awareness, self-control, social awareness and relationship management.

 Who are these trailblazers? How are they doing it? What do they know? They are Executive Coaches, committed to ushering individuals to a level of emotional mastery, self- awareness and understanding, which facilitates optimal functionality within the human experience in all capacities. Executive Coaching emphasizes improvement in the following five areas: anger, stress, communication styles, emotional intelligence, and motivation to change. The coaching approach goes beyond reducing the symptoms of illness; rather, it is centered on keeping well people functioning well.

 Why executives? It is not to say that the content of executive coaching is non-essential for everyone; in fact, it is. However, executives are in a very unique position to create an environment conducive to the personal growth and development of all those within their sphere of influence. In order to effect systemic progress, it is essential for those in positions of great power to first attain increased levels of personal mastery. Only then, can complete organizational advancement take place.

 Furthermore, “with power comes great responsibility.” The great responsibility of executives is to recognize their employees as human beings, not human capital. This realization is facilitated immensely by the expanded levels of awareness which result from Executive Coaching. Through the coaching process, people in positions of power realize their potential to promote progress beyond their own organization; gradually, they see that the entire global community, characterized by its modern interconnectedness, stands to benefit from the progress stemming from Executive Coaching.  Executive Coaches are the current incarnation of “paradigm shifters,” changing the course from treatment to development and skill enhancement, and creating a renaissance of human awareness. Their ideology is rooted in helping “well” people function well or better.
