Anger Management is not just for anger

Most anger management programs in the U.S. provide skill enhancements in all of the four domains of emotional intelligence. Programs which limit their focus to anger triggers, anger cessation or individual psychotherapy for anger, reduce their effectiveness by failure to recognize the differences between unhealthy anger and deficits in emotional intelligence.The four domains of Emotional Intelligence which can be enhanced by Certified Anger Management Facilitators are:

Social awareness
Relationship management
Each of these four domains contains additional skill scales which are addressed via definitions, demonstrations, exercises, DVDs, CDs, as well as practice.Given the scope of practice for Certified Anger Management Facilitators, intervention can be offered individuals, small groups, couples, executives, adolescents as well as adults. All programs should include a Pre and Post Test as well as appropriate client workbooks.

Managing Anger in a Tough Environment

LAS VEGAS  — From child abuse to road rage, anger can be seen just about everywhere, everyday. The bad economy has families struggling financially and emotionally, pushing some to the breaking point.

Anger is a normal emotion, but usually stems from fear or worry. The economic climate is making things worse with families underwater on their homes or unemployed.

But instead of letting anger become a problem, one expert says learning how to control your anger could be life changing.

“If we perceive that we are being attacked, we respond with the angry response,” said Dr. Steven Sinert with Nevada Anger Management. “In our economy today, many people are fearing losing their homes, losing their jobs, losing their families.”

In the last four days in Las Vegas, four people were arrested for child abuse, 12 for assault and 88 for domestic violence.

Twenty-four-year-old Cody Geddings was arrested for the murder of 16-month-old Addison Weast, who suffered several skull fractures. Those who know Geddings described him as angry with a temper.

“He would punch holes in the wall. Anything that got in his way, he would destroy it. He would punch windows out,” said a family member.
But anger can be seen in even subtle ways, including a homeowner upset with the bank, a neighbor upset with a barking dog or road rage.
Dr. Sinert says now more than ever, anger management is needed.

“We can’t think clearly and it’s at that time when people will become aggressively abusive, fists through walls, hurt people. And it’s a matter of teaching them how to get their conscious mind in a more relaxed state so they can think clearly,” he said.

Sinert has his clients focus on communication, stress management and recognizing emotions and the emotions of those around you. He calls it a life changing lesson that could make all of the difference.

Metro will be tackling this issue at their First Tuesday event. It’s held at all of their area commands starting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 6.

The Public’s Use of Anger Management is Increasing Nationwide

Generally, when we think of anger management we tend to think of aggressive males who are physically violent and, as a result are mandated to attend anger management classes by Court Order as a result of person or property directed violence or aggression. In reality, most clients of Anger Management Programs are mandated to attend anger management by their workplace Human Resource Managers. HR Referrals are related to the prevention of workplace violence. The second most common referral source of anger management clients is actually from spouses or significant others who are concerned over their partners’ lack of empathy or poor communication skills or verbally aggressive behavior.

Finally, there is now a dramatic increase of volunteer referrals from persons, such as parents, who have become aware that they often exhibit a lack of patience, lack of empathy, assertive communication, poor stress management skills or a lack of competence in creating win win situations in interpersonal relationships.

The current trend in anger management referrals is primarily related to the public’s recognition of the need and value of opportunities for skill enhancement in self-awareness, self-control, social awareness, relationship management, assertive communication, stress management, empathy and anger management. The current focus of most anger management programs in the U.S. are actually base on emotional intelligence.

All of these programs are non–psychiatric and include Pre and Post Test, client workbooks, DVDs, Videos as well as a wide variety of skill building exercises. Generally, these courses are
provided individually or in small groups.
