Last year, Anderson & Anderson Anger Management was asked to offer Gift Certificates for a ten-hour course in Emotional Intelligence/Anger Management. We placed a small announcement on our website and were surprised with the results.
1). The first participant was a Catholic Priest who was stunned but appreciative.
2). Another participant was Mormon Bishop from an adjoining County who drove considerable distance on a weekly basis to complete the 10 -hour course.
3). A physician received his Gift Certificate from his thirteen –year- old son who claimed to be afraid of his father.
4.) An Attorney came at the urging of his own HR Manager who feared a hostile work environment lawsuit based on the attorneys’ behavior at work.
5. Four members of a five person Medical Group insisted that the fifth member of the group accept their gift for this course.
6). The man who suggested that we offer Gift Certificates bought tem which he gave to special people in his life including his mother.
7.) Finally, a women ended her engagement with her fiancée and gave him a certificate to attend anger management.
Anger Management Coaching begins with the internationally recognized Bar On EQi Emotional Intelligence Assessment which can be accessed On-line. When based on skill enhancement in Emotional Intelligence, impulse control/ Anger Management is useful and positive for anyone interested in increasing his or her skills in emotional intelligence.
