Anger Management Guru to Host Groundbreaking Anger Management Training in the State of Washington

Anderson & Anderson begins its campaign for continued dominance in the world of anger management services by offering training seminars in cities and states that currently have very few options.

Los Angeles, CA, September 14, 2009 --( Anderson & Anderson will be hosting a three-day anger management training seminar at the King Oscar Hotel in Lacey, Washington on October 29 through October 31, 2009. One interesting thing about the location of this training is that it is not one of the typical locations where Anderson & Anderson provides its training. In fact, this will be the first time that Anderson & Anderson provides Anger Management training in the State of Washington. Family Life Skills, a company based in Washington, is co-sponsoring this training. The company has already guaranteed twenty new trainees. Anderson & Anderson will get thirty more potential trainees registered in order to reach the goal of having fifty, the maximum allowed for the facility that will be utilized.

The first day of training will focus on Adolescent Anger Management and will use the Anderson workbook "Controlling Ourselves" as the text. A demonstration and discussion of the Conover Assessment Component will be conducted. This one-day training is designed for Nurses, School Counselors/Psychologists, Substance Abuse Counselors, Case Managers, HR Managers, Clinicians, Probation Officers, as well as staff from group homes, and agencies serving families and youth. This curriculum is currently being used in school districts in Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, Concord and San Diego, as well as school districts in Texas and Louisiana. In addition, probation departments in Arizona, Kansas, California and Texas use this model.

On the second day, Adult Anger Management will be examined. A demonstration of the Conover Assessment will be conducted with a discussion of its usefulness. "Gaining Control of Ourselves", in conjunction with experiential exercises and videos, will be used to initiate the participants to this intervention. Most major corporations have accepted this model for use by their Human Resources and EAP Managers, including the U.S. Department of Defense.

The third day of Training is Organizational Emotional Intelligence/ Anger Management. This training is designed to prepare the participant to offer workshops or presentations relative to anger management, civility or emotional intelligence a small group format. This is rapidly becoming one of the most requested interventions in anger management. This training has been conducted for Kaiser Permanente of Southern California, the Riverside County Medical Association as well as the Illinois State Bar Association.
