Organizational Anger Management/Emotional Intelligence Training a Smash Hit!

On Friday, November 20, 2009, George Anderson presented one of his most masterful trainings to date on Organizational Anger Management/Emotional Intelligence Training. This one day training for three different types of organizations consisted of three sample requests: one, two or four hour Organizational Anger Management Trainings.

 The assignment along with two Power Point Presentations which Mr. Anderson had previously given on the same topic, was given to the participants the day before the Friday training, with the requirement that they each present a one or two page proposal, as well as a one hour Power Presentation for the attendees.

 The responses from the participants were overwhelmingly positive. This training left each participant with a useable resource/template for any type of Organization Training using the Practice of Control.

 This one day training is available in a DVD Home Study format for the yearly required continuing education as well as live at Anderson & Anderson on Dec. 7, 2009.

Additionally, General Manager, Takspa Lekdan will share his own presentation at the next training.

Anger Management for Developmentally Disabled Adults and Youth

A developmental disability is a disability that is manifested before the person reaches 22 years of age, which constitutes a substantial disability to the affected individual, and is attributable to mental retardation or related conditions which include cerebral palsy, epilepsy, autism or other neurological conditions when such conditions result in impairment of general intellectual functioning or adaptive behavior similar to that of a person with mental retardation.
Adaptive behavior means that the person has overall adaptive behavior which is significantly limited in two or more skill areas (communication, self-care, home living, social skills, community use, self direction, health and safety, functional academics, leisure, and work:, as measured by an instrument which is standardized, appropriate to the person’s living environment, and administered and clinically determined by a qualified professional.
Like so many other skill enhancement interventions, anger management professionals have overlooked the entire developmentally disabled population. This is unfortunate, unacceptable and must be addressed.
Like any other individuals, persons who are developmentally disabled suffer from deficits in their ability to understand and manage stress, recognize when they are becoming angry and control their behavior when unpleasant feelings are present. In addition, they may be prone to appear insensitive and lacking in empathy.
Anger management classes for developmentally disabled persons must sometimes be offered on an individual basis or in dyads or very small groups. Graphics with pictures as well as CDs and DVDs or posters must be maximized for those who learn best with visual material.
Frequent, brief sessions are often better than 50- minute sessions that overwhelm the client’s capacity to sustain attention. All providers must have a minimum of 40 hours in Anger Management Facilitator Certification.
Before and After Assessments must be modified for use with developmentally disabled persons.

Content for using the Conover Assessment curriculum will be incorporated into the Anderson & Anderson upcoming certification training for Los Angeles and Oakland
