Anger Management Classes Should Be An EAP Benefit


Anger Management, Like Stress Management, Should Be An Employee Assistance  Benefit

As a former Employee Assistance Provider, I have many years of experience providing stress management for employees including many Fortune 500 Companies. For many years, stress has been recognized as a problem that impacts employee morale, sick day usage, attendance and work performance.

Critical Incidence Debriefing was introduced in the 1980’s to deal with crisis in the workplace with good results. Even before stress and CID, substance abuse was a company benefit and a major focus of Employee Assistance Programs.

Since anger is a secondary emotion, it is often preceded by stress, anxiety, depression or fear. Following the attacks of 9/11, the entire world was made vulnerable to an increase in unhealthy anger and workplace conflicts.

It is now time for EAPs to advocate for anger management intervention as a benefit for all employees. Anger management is not the same as violence prevention programs. Anger management is or should be classes that teach skills in managing anger, stress, improving communication and enhancing emotional intelligence.

Secrets Of Success in Anger Management Practice

Certified Anger Management Providers are doing well and good throughout Canada and the United States. Currently, the number of providers in Canada are increasing more rapidly than any other area in the world.

The 7 Secrets Of Highly Successful Anger Management Facilitators are included below:

  1. Technical competence in anger management, stress management, communication and empathy/emotional intelligence is by far the single most important  factor for professional and financial success in Private Anger Management Practice.
  2. The use of a recognized, evidenced based curriculum with client workbooks as well as a Pre and Post Tests and ancillary training material.
  3. A well designed Website with an active blog is important in establishing credibility for Certified Anger Management Facilitators. Being good is not enough, everyone must know from the Internet that you are good.
  4. Your location will determine your client demographics, income as well as the probability of a steady flow of clients who are motivated to participate in the process of change.
  5. An efficient office with a live Virtual Assistant or Receptionist who is capable of diffusing the anger clients.
  6. A willingness to use every opportunity to market your practice on social media sites as well as professional and trade associations nationwide.
  7. Finally, successful Anger Management Facilitators like any other small business owner must spend time each day in making certain that anger management is his or her major focus of concern.
In contrast to Coaching or Psychotherapy, anger management can be provided in small groups making the hourly income far greater than individual sessions. In addition, Organizational Anger Management  presentations are profitable and popular.
