Executive Coaching/Anger Management for Physicians™

New “disruptive physician behavior’ standards create conflict among hospital administration and medical staff.

Hospital administrators and doctors nationwide are experiencing problems in establishing and implementing the new JACHO standards for “disruptive behavior” for physicians. Physicians are appropriately concerned over any damage to their future careers as the results of having been referred by their credential committee, physician well being committee or any other disciplinary unit or hospital administration for “disruptive behavior”. Therefore, they have argued forcefully for all types of written assurances to protect themselves from risk.

One of the consequences of this squabbling is the delay in the implementation of these new standards. Some of the new policies appear to stall actions against any physician accused of disruptive behavior for at least six months by requiring the physician to participate in a survey in which others in his specialty area are asked to respond to a series of questions regarding his or her demeanor in relation to patient care and interpersonal interaction. The goal is to see if the physician is able to make changes in his or her behavior without intervention. If positive changes are seen, the survey is repeated in three months and a decision is made to dismiss the action or to order anger management.

What is clear so far is that psychological/psychiatric intervention is not seen as an acceptable remedy for disruptive behavior by any of the new policies, which are being adopted. All physicians routinely reject any record of intervention, which implies treatment for mental or nervous disorders. This is a reasonable strategy since anger is not a pathological condition and therefore not responsive to psychotherapy or psychotropic medication.

The most reasonable and the most widely acceptable intervention is one which is offered on-site or at a neutral location with an opportunity for the physician to receive an intensive assessment for stress, anger, communication styles, emotional intelligence and motivation to change. The Coaching offered must include skill enhancement in these same areas.

Anger Management, a Neglected Topic in Gang Intervention

In many U.S. cities and some rural areas, gangs are exploding and causing alarm to residents as well as local, state, and federal politicians. The most typical response to gang violence is to increase law enforcement devoted to cracking down on youth criminals. Prosecuting attorneys have used creative approaches to gang intervention, including injunctions and the enforcement of housing codes.

Prevention is generally an after-thought with limited resources and little tracking of the success or lack of success of these efforts. Strategies to frighten at-risk youth such as “scared straight” and D.A.R.E. have been funded for many years with few results.

Legitimate anger management classes, which include pre- and post-tests, curricula, client workbooks, DVDs and other teaching material actually work. These courses, when taught by Certified Anger Management Facilitators, lead to a decrease in person-directed violence, an increase in empathy, an increase in precision learning, as well as an increase in self-esteem and academic achievement.

The state of Texas is considering making anger management a required course for all middle and high school students. If this measure becomes law, there will be a decrease in aggression and violence in adult life. Some school districts in Texas are already using anger management with considerable success.

In addition to skill enhancement in anger management, stress management, communication and emotional intelligence, anger management classes can be used in lieu of suspension, expulsion, or school transfer. Courses for parents can, and should, be available through adult schools for parents of at-risk youth. Finally, anger management should be used in all gang prevention programs and substance abuse programs.

Reflections on the Anger Management Certification Training

T. L. “Tom” Wentz, Ph.D., C.A.M.F., C.E.C., owner and Executive Director of Anger Management/Executive Coaching for Professionals, Palm Desert, CA completed three days of adult and adolescent anger management, and emotional intelligence training in Santa Monica, CA this past week.  The training was led by Mr. George Anderson, MSW, BCD, CEAP. Mr. Anderson, Executive Director of Anderson and Anderson Anger Management/Executive Coaching for Physicians, Brentwood, CA is the world’s largest provider of anger management training and an internationally recognized expert and facilitator of anger management and executive coaching for physicians.

“Mr. Anderson’s training is truly exceptional. He provides more than just his curriculum on anger and stress management, communications skills, and emotional intelligence. Mr. Anderson leads by his years of experience and example as well as provides ‘lessons within lessons’, especially concerning the constant and sensitive application of the principles of emotional intelligence throughout the training! The trainees included professionals from the Brooklyn DA’s Office in New York City and social workers, psychotherapists, ministers and educators. The backgrounds, diversity, and individuality of the participants would have been daunting for the most experienced trainer, yet Mr. Anderson, through his knowledge and expertise, was able to convert the most stoic of personalities and transcend individual differences to create a living lesson of the value of emotional intelligence to demonstrate why George Anderson is the ‘Storm’s Quiet Eye’.”
