Founders of ZTV Jamie & GLoria Cooper

Anger Management Advocates:

Every state should make Anger Management & Conflict Resolution mandatory if divorcing with children. The typical scenario of a married couple, best friend, affair, divorce then control, jealousy and arguing while a child becomes a pawn- happens way too often!

I divorced my wife in 1995 or should I say she divorced me after having an affair with my best friend. They married soon after. Gloria and I married in 1999 and suddenly co-parenting became obsolete. My son was six and making or being included in any decision in his life had become non-existent. It got to the point that even when we agreed on a decision, another decision was implemented. Note to any person in the same situation do not let it slide. File contempt charges early so it does not continue to escalate into the teen years-because it will.

After years of arguing and bad behavior on all parties involved I exploded in a phone conversation to my son who was fourteen that my ex set up to record. I played right into her hands. She angered me, controlled me and she and my son knew how to push my buttons. Years of manipulation and lack of respect came out- it was ugly. I had not yet learned that I had the control over my anger.

After volunteering to attend Anger Management classes with Frank Morales ( Family Services Center) – You always want to volunteer before being forced, my life had changed. Not only my life but my wife, Gloria’s, as well. My former wife no longer pushes my buttons! Although requests for conflict resolution to my ex-wife were ignored & we still can’t seem to agree anything in life is better than ever. I encourage everyone to attend the classes. I did for 13 weeks and upon graduating Gloria joined me and we continued to attend for an additional three months. Don’t ever be ashamed to attend a class-you will be amazed at the people you will meet. Since Frank’s class we have moved and prospered in all aspects of our life. We are free!

If you can’t have a civil conversation with a particular person (ex or not) or you have parental input and feel as if you are going to explode-run to a class. It is now our intent to help many avoid the same mistakes, patterns, manipulation, attacks, complaints and self destruction that we’ve experienced. At all cost don’t let those who anger you control you!

“Getting angry is human-learning how to react is brilliant.”

Jamie Cooper.

Frank Morales has been a certified Anderson & Anderson Anger management facilitator since 2003.

Anderson & Anderson in Wall Street Journal

Valerie Harper exhibits six types of anger, based on the National Anger Management Association's scale.

When Anger Is An Illness ‘Intermittent Explosive Disorder,’ Or Just a Temper Tantrum?

Scream at the boss? Snap at a colleague? Throw your cell phone into your @#$%%&* computer monitor? If so, you may find yourself headed to anger-management classes, which have become an all-purpose antidote for fit-throwing celebrities, chair-throwing coaches, vandals, road ragers, delinquent teens, disruptive airline passengers, and obstreperous employees.

Demand for such programs is coming from courts seeking alternatives to jail sentences and companies hoping to avoid lawsuits and office blowups. Aware that high-pressure jobs can make for hot tempers, some professions offer pre-emptive anger management. A few state bar associations now require “civility” training for lawyers renewing their licenses. And as of last year, hospitals must have programs for “disruptive” physicians as a condition of accreditation.

Programs run the gamut from $300-an-hour private therapists to one-day intensive seminars, weekly group sessions or online courses with no human interaction. Many advertise that they satisfy court requirements—even if all they offer is six CDs and a certificate of completion.

It’s not clear if the programs work, as few studies have analyzed their effectiveness. There are no licensing requirements for anger-management trainers—anyone can open a business. And since participants don’t usually sign up voluntarily, trainers say it’s possible to complete a program without actually changing one’s behavior.

There have been some notable failures—the Columbine shooters, for example, attended anger-management classes before their 1999 killing spree. Amy Bishop, the University of Alabama biologist who allegedly killed three colleagues and wounded three more last month, had been advised by prosecutors to take anger-management classes after an earlier incident in 2002. Her lawyer says he doesn’t know if she did.

Psychiatrists generally recommend a psychiatric exam for people with severe anger problems, because anger can often accompany depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

The closest thing to a formal diagnosis for anger alone is Intermittent Explosive Disorder, defined as episodes of aggression against people or property out of proportion to any provocation. In 2006, studies at Harvard University and the University of Chicago estimated that one in 20 Americans (mostly men) may fit the criteria for IED. Some respond well to antidepressants, particularly serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). Brain scans of people with IED found that when they were shown pictures of angry faces, their amygdalae, the primitive, emotional part of the brain, lit up with activity, but not the frontal cortex, which normally exercises impulse control.

“These people are hot heads, and the people around them are walking on egg shells. They don’t know when they are going to blow up next,” says University of Chicago psychiatrist Emil Coccaro, a leading IED researcher.

IED, recognized as a psychiatric illness since 1980, may be combined with a new disorder, termed Temper Dysregulation Disorder, in the next edition of the official Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, the DSM-V, because both are believed to begin in adolescence.

Psychologists believe that individual talk therapy is the most effective for anger problems. “Anger doesn’t occur by itself. It’s nested and embedded with a lot of other emotions—sadness, grief, shame,” says Raymond Novaco, a University of California, Irvine, psychologist who widely credited with coining the term “anger management” in the 1970s and developed several widely used measurement scales. “Angry people want to talk, given the opportunity,” he says.

Professional anger-management trainers say that in most cases anger isn’t an illness but a normal human emotion that causes problems when it flares too hot, too often. They believe people can learn to manage their anger with practical skills.

“I don’t want everybody who calls up for anger management to be assumed to have a mental illness,” says Ian Shaffer, chief medical officer for MHN, a subsidiary of Health Net Inc., which runs employee-assistance programs for companies, including anger management. MHN’s anger-management program takes the form of conference calls. After an individual evaluation, employees whose jobs are on the line because of anger issues are told to call an 800 number for a 90-minute group discussion with a facilitator twice a week for six sessions. All participants are anonymous. MHN says one in-house study found that three-fourths of the employees whose jobs were in jeopardy were in good standing after completing the program.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703954904575109671604585094.html?mod=wsj_share_facebook#video%3DFB64232C-02F5-4165-871B-44C4FBDAC86B%26articleTabs%3Dvideo

How can they tell if the employees aren’t working at the computer or filing their nails during the sessions? “We can’t—but we can tell if you’re participating or progressing,” says Dr. Shaffer, a psychiatrist. “People can sandbag you—bright people know what to say to make it sound like they are progressing,” he says. “But at the end of the day, we go back and ask your supervisor if you’re better.”

Most anger-management programs stress “emotional intelligence”—the idea that understanding why you are frustrated or annoyed or upset, and finding a calm, constructive means to get your way, is far more effective than losing your temper.

George Anderson, founder of Anderson & Anderson, a Brentwood, Calif., firm, says some people who get angry in the workplace are perfectionists who expect perfection from others, while some are subconsciously masking feelings of vulnerability. His firm offers dozens of customized anger-management programs for different professions. Among these: a $5,400 intensive on-site intervention for furious physicians who’ve lost hospital privileges due to patient or staff complaints.

Mr. Anderson tells of watching one surgeon ream out someone via cell phone while performing open-heart surgery. He says he helped the doctor realize he’d be more effective with a different approach.

“I’m not always successful,” Mr. Anderson says. “I usually say, look, you’re paying a lot of money for this… What would you be wiling to change? You’ve tried passive aggressive and it turns people off. Let’s try assertive communication—you see if it works.”

Branding is The Key To Small Business Success on the Internet

Q. What is branding?

A. Simply put, a brand is a promise. By identifying and authenticating a product or service, branding delivers a pledge of satisfaction and quality. In the case of Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Services, the pledge is that all providers 1) have completed 40 hours of training in the Anderson & Anderson curriculum, 2) use the Conover Assessment and the Anderson & Anderson client workbooks, and 3) subscribe to the latest developments in the field of anger management by completing 16 hours of continuing education annually.

A brand is a promise of quality. Coke and Pepsi and McDonalds promise quality taste and consistency in their products worldwide. UPS and Southwest Airlines are equally as predictable in the promise of low prices and on time service.

Niche areas such as Anger Management and Executive Coaching as well as Psychotherapy can be branded in the same fashion. In Anger Management, you are better off by seeking training and certification in a curriculum that is well known, has high Internet Saturation and is the most widely used model in your state or country. In Executive Coaching, a provider may seek training and affiliation with the dominant model or rely on the most recognized Certification Organization for affiliation. (ICF)

For psychotherapy, Managed Health Care is, unfortunately, only interested in the least costly intervention. Consequently, training and demonstrated competence may be recognized by patients but may have little bearing on those responsible for paying for the services. Nevertheless, it is best to brand your practice on a theoretical orientation that is already recognized (Cognitive Behavioral).

For the last thirty years, Toyota of was the brand of cars for reliability, economy and high resale value. Toyota has now lost some of ifs brand prowess based on the current crises. In Psychotherapy, Psychoanalysis and dynamically oriented psychotherapy no longer wins favor from Managed Health Care Organizations.

The Conover Anger Management assessment determines a client’s level of functioning in recognizing and managing anger and stress, level of assertive communication, and the degree of emotional intelligence. The Anderson & Anderson curriculum is focused on skills to enhance functioning in these four areas: anger management, stress management, communication and emotional intelligence. This separates this model from all others.

Q. Why is branding important?

A. It prevents the danger of being anonymous. Branding provides answers to a lot of clients’ questions, such as:

 Who are you?
· What do you sell?
· How are you different from those offering similar services?
· Why are you better than your competitors?

 · Why should I enroll in your program?
In summary, the degree to which your practice is recognized by potential clients will determine your perceived credibility and consequently your success.
