The Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Curricula undergoes major changes

Over the last four years, Anderson & Anderson has moved closer to linking its’ anger management curricula to the Bar On EQi Emotional Intelligence Assessment and the concepts of EQ as articulated in The EQ Edge relative to the 15 scales that form the core of this instrument.

Given the current popularity of the Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Facilitator Certification, it is only natural that it will continue to influence how anger management is practiced throughout the United States. Therefore, anger management has moved from the management of anger to a broader understanding of the relationship between anger, stress, communication, self-awareness, social awareness, impulse control, optimism, decision making, self-perception, flexibility or relationship management.

Anderson & Anderson was one of the first major Anger Management providers to push for a clear acknowledgement from the American Psychiatric Association that while anger may be a symptom of a range of health and mental health disorders, anger is not in itself a pathological condition and is not a listed illness in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Nervous and Mental Disorders. According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a normal human emotion that is experienced by everyone at some time.

This is important since it means that counseling, psychotherapy or psychotropic medication is not the intervention of choice for anger management. It allows anger to be defined as a problem when it is too intense, occurs too frequently, impacts health, lasts too long, destroys interpersonal relationships or leads to person-directed aggression.

All of the commonly recognized emotional intelligence concepts offer the best over all strategies for skill enhancement in impulse control. Coaching has increased the usefulness of Emotional Intelligence and made anger management far more acceptable to those seeking help.

Current and future Anderson & Anderson Certified Anger Management Facilitators/Coaches will be invited to take the Bar On EQi Emotional Intelligence Assessment On-line prior to the training. The EQ Edge will be required reading for each new Coach.

Gifts For Those Who Have Everything Except Good EQ Skills

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.

Trends In Executive Coaching

By Joan Caruso

It’s been more than a decade since coaching gained a toehold in the corporate environment, and it has continued to broaden its acceptance. I find it valuable to periodically take stock of emerging trends in the field and validate them against our own experience at The Ayers Group.

  1.  Here are some of my observations:
  2. Coaching continues to become more of an executive perk. As I reported in the Fall 2004 issue of the Ayers Report (“The Perk That Pays Back”), this trend emerged at the beginning of the decade. Then coaching shifted back to a remedial focus during the economic downturn. Over the last two years, however, we’ve seen steadily less use of executive coaching for remedial situations and more of a focus on using it to develop and retain high-potential employees and high flyers.
  3. Companies are giving more attention than ever to the coach-coachee matching process. A 2004 survey* of executive learning methods by Executive Development Associates found “the match between leader and coach to be much more critical than expected.” Our clients are asking for more information about the criteria for creating the optimal match. We tell them it’s our responsibility to bring in-depth knowledge of our coaches to the table, but the more information the client can provide about a coaching candidate—learning and developmental style, coaching objectives, etc.—the better the match we’re able to create.
  4. Anger management has become one of fastest-growing disciplines in executive coaching. Undoubtedly fueled by a fast-paced business environment where change, complexity, pressure, and stress are on the increase, the number of requests we’re getting in this area is on the increase. I’m very cautious in dealing with these situations, going only to executive coaches with demonstrated expertise in this discipline. With demand for anger-management coaching outstripping the supply of trained providers, it’s important to vet providers very carefully. Anger management touches on a variety of issues—stress management, emotional intelligence, etc.—and crosses into the realm of psychology. You walk a fine line to avoid a situation where the coach slips into becoming a shrink, and that isn’t what executive coaching is about.
  5. As companies increasingly recognize the benefit of coaching, they are pushing it downward in the organization. More and more of our clients are now offering coaching to high-potentials at junior, as well as executive, levels.

Stress Management Tip Sheet – Diffusing Anger in Others

By George Anderson, MSW, BCD
Introduction

Anger and aggression are often the product of frustration and a feeling of powerlessness. Listening is the most important skill in defusing anger. Do not attempt to reason with a person in the midst of irrational anger. Listening with your heart means trying to determine how the other person is feeling as they are speaking. This is empathetic listening.

Phrases for active listening:

  • Can you tell me more?
  • When did this happen?
  • Let me see if I understand what you just said.
  • It sounds like you are very angry right now.
  • What would you like to see happen?
  • I see it this way. How do you see it?
  • How do you think this issue can be resolved?
  • Do many people feel the way you do?
  • I am glad you feel comfortable talking to me about this.

Assume that they have (in their mind) a legitimate reason for being upset and listen for what it is. Nod, occasionally, to indicate that you are listening. And, while you are listening, remember:

  • Efforts to resist verbally are counterproductive, and put the aggressor in an even more defensive position.
  • Try to appear neutral in your posture and facial expressions.

Experts tell us that as much as 55 percent of the meaning of any message comes from visual indicators – posture, gestures, body positioning, etc. We also know that as much as 75 percent of that 55 percent comes from our face. Make a conscious effort to relax your face, unclench your jaw and lift your eyebrows. Think, “open, pleasant, neutral, relaxed.  Speak in a moderate tone.

Try to Change the Focus

When people are angry and upset, one of the first things we want to do is change their emotional state. We can do this by interrupting their pattern and refocusing their attention. Ways to do this:

  • Say their name. When you need to speak, start by saying the person’s name. When a person hears their name they will stop and change what they are focused on, if only for a moment.
  • Say, “hang on a second.” These words, said with extreme calm and relaxation, again stop the person for a moment and change what they have their attention fixed on.

When people are angry and upset, they are operating predominantly out of the right, emotional side of their brain.  To get them over to the logical, rational left side of their brain, if at all possible say something like this:

Example: “You’re saying; one, you didn’t get the report in time.  Two, it didn’t have all the information you needed. And three, it was not in the right format, is that correct?” To comprehend what you are saying, the person has to flip over to their left-brain in order to follow the sequence.

Look for Solutions
  • If you are not sure how you can help, ask. If you are in a position to provide help, again list the steps you will take in a numerical fashion.
  • Either way, use the words, “I want to help!” Let the other person know, in no uncertain terms, that you care about what they are going through and are willing to assist in correcting the problem.

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.
