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
