On Wednesday, January 4, 2012 a group of disgruntle Marriage Counselors, Substance Abuse Counselors and Hypnotists delivered an improvised Anger Management Counselor list to at least one Criminal Court in Van Nuys. Once the list was brought to the attention of the Court Manager, he explained that this list was, in fact, not official and would not be used by any of these courts.
A history of the Approved Los Angeles County Anger Management Provider list may be useful.
- Approximately 15 years ago, George Anderson was approached by A Los Angeles Superior Court Judge who explained that he was Chair of a Committee of Judges with the responsibility to come up with a list of Anger Management Providers who were trained and use specific client workbooks. He requested copies of the Anderson & Anderson Client workbooks along with a request that any Court Officer who requests, would be given a copy of this workbook.
- Anderson & Anderson agreed with all of the conditions requested by this committee.
- Therefore, each January since we began, we have been updating this list for all of the courts in Los Angeles County.
- The 2012 list from Anderson & Anderson will be hand delivered to all Criminal Counts on January 5, 2012.
