Anderson & Anderson®, the Trusted Name in Anger Management, conducted an eight-hour continuing education seminar on Tuesday, May 27th, 2008. This seminar was strictly focused on Emotional Intelligence and the Personal Skills Assessment that addresses empathy. The purpose of this seminar was to coach current anger management providers (who utilize the Anderson & Anderson model of anger management) on how to assess and measure the level of empathy of each client they meet with. The Emotional Intelligence Profile measures several kinds of skills that each person uses on a daily basis. These include intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills, career/life skills, and personal wellness skills.
Providers from different parts of the country attended this groundbreaking seminar. Among those in attendance were providers from South Carolina, Alabama, and several counties in California. All of these providers reported that they are doing extremely well providing anger management for court referrals, business referrals, and voluntary clientele.
This seminar was provided as an opportunity for providers to get an early start on completing continuing education units required for maintaining status as an Anderson & Anderson anger management provider. Most importantly, however, it was a great opportunity for providers to get together and learn new ways in which they can increase the professionalism of the Anderson & Anderson model and vastly improve in their methods of reaching new clientele.
Anderson & Anderson will continue to offer these kinds of seminars. The goal is to have yearly physical contact with providers so that they are kept up to date with the latest and greatest of our anger management model. We also want them to address any issues they may be having that prove to be hindrances to their success as anger management providers.
