Emotional Self-Awareness Is A Key Factor In Anger Management

It is generally agreed that anger is a secondary emotion. There is always some other emotion that precedes the feeling of anger. The most common antecedents of anger include stress, anxiety, fear, depression, fatigue or hurt.

If we can learn to recognize and label our feelings, this awareness will give us time to determine how best to respond to feelings of anger. Anger is a normal human emotion. Anger is a signal of perceived danger. Everyone gets angry from time to time. Anger is a problem when it is too intense, occurs too frequently, lasts too long, leads to aggression or violence, impacts health, causes problems at work or school or destroys interpersonal relationships.

The way one responds to feelings of anger is learned generally from our families of origin. This is significant because any behavior that is learned can be unlearned and skill enhancement in emotional intelligence can be taught.

Emotional Intelligence skill enhancement for impulse control is emerging as the most promising intervention for coaches, counselors, psychologists, clinical social workers, human resource managers as well as the criminal justice system. Since Emotional Intelligence coaching include pre and post assessments, evidence of success or lack of success can be determined for each participant.

The American Association of Anger Management Providers is the official voice of professional providers of anger management in the U.S. This organization is sponsoring its first national conference on anger management in Los Angeles, Ca. on August 23, 24, 2014 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Charlie Sheen Sitcom Makes Anger Management Universal

The popularity of the new Anger Management Sitcom featuring Charlie Sheen is making anger management a household concept. Certified Anger Management Facilitators in the U.S. and Canada are being inundated with requests for information or appointments for anger management coaching or anger management/emotional intelligence assessments.

As an Anger Management Certified Facilitator, it is in our collective best interest to hashtag our comments weekly to #anger management on the Charlie Sheen Program. This will essentially be a free ad for your own services in this important area.

Quite Frankly George Anderson Is THE Anger Management Guru

What comes to mind when you think of anger management? Some would describe anger management as a method to control one’s emotions. Others, like me, would think of Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler in the motion picture film Anger Management. Until recently, there was no right answer. Anger Management was just a term thrown around, and clearly, no one knew what it was. That was until George Anderson and his team of associates not only defined the term, but set the standard. Since then, Mr. Anderson and his team have never looked back.

Still never heard of them, eh? The Anderson & Anderson program is internationally renowned, and, currently, they are the largest provider of certified Anger Management Facilitator training in the world. George Anderson and his ideals have been featured in the New York Times, the Baltimore Sun News, the Toronto Sun News, ESPN, the Los Angeles Times Magazine, NBC’s Starting Over, the Chicago Tribune, Entertainment Weekly, the London Sunday Times, BBC, and many more. Along with his lifetime of accolades, Mr. Anderson shed his knowledge on Hollywood when he served as a technical consultant on the well-known green lit film, Anger Management. By now I’m sure you are starting to see the big picture. Some of L.A.’s most elite make the drive down Wilshire Boulevard, proving that the Anderson & Anderson business model is one of L.A.’s most untapped resources.

Affiliates of Anderson & Anderson are popping up all over the internet like chicken pox. Don’t believe me? Take a look for yourself. Currently there are over 75 web sites affiliated with the Anderson & Anderson business model and their merchandise. Quietly, Mr. Anderson has become the godfather in a relatively unchartered industry. He has certified trainers mentored personally by himself all over the world, in countries like Argentina and London. Over time the business mogul of 12301 Wilshire Boulevard has set the bar as the most prominent anger management provider of the world, quite frankly in an industry that Mr. Anderson defined himself. So maybe next time when you think anger management, you will think Anderson & Anderson.

On-line Anger Management Classes undermine professionalism

On-line Anger Management Classes cheapens the legitimacy of Anger Management as a discipline

Anger Management is a favorite scam for Internet pirates. Since there are no laws in any state regulating the practice of anger management services, opportunists are free to market and sell cheap, inexpensive and worthless On-line Anger Management Classes to an unsuspecting public.

Judges and Court Officers lack the staff, knowledge or resources to determine the credibility of completion certificates and other documents used to claim attendance in Court Mandated Anger Management Courses

California State Superior Courts lead the nation in listing standards for Anger Management Facilitators. Here is a list of requirements of Court Acceptable Anger Management Providers in California:

  • All providers must have 40 hours of training and Certification in Anger Management.
  • Must use client workbooks designed to teach skills in self-awareness, self-control, social awareness and relationship management.
  • Must use objective Emotional Intelligence Assessments.
  • The Assessment must provide a MAP that identifies the clients’ level of Emotional Intelligence skills in the recognizing and managing stress, anger, communication and emotional intelligence.
  • Must offer Post Tests to determines each participants level of success.

One way that consumers can protect themselves from On-line anger management scams is to check with the court to determine if a particular On-line class in question is acceptable to the court. Once the court is aware that the course is On-line, the answer will always be no.
