ANGER ON MY MIND

Posts Tagged ‘anger management certification

What happens if your idea goes over like a lead balloon? What happens if no one is interested in your idea? Do you continue to persist and for how long?  While it is always good to be persistent, it is also good to understand when you have to throw in the towel. No one wins all of the time. It is impossible. When you see that you continue to run into a brick wall time and time again, it may be time for a change.  It can be tough to give up on a dream. But many successful people have had many dreams that failed. Even successful corporations have hit upon some real clinkers. They did not give up and they did not continue pouring time, energy, effort and money into something that wasn’t working.  Like most people, you have current problems and areas in your life that need improvement.  How can you find out what needs to be changed so that you can improve these areas of your life.   
 
You cannot get everyone to like you or agree with what you want. No one has that kind of power. And no matter what ideas you may have or how good they are, they will not be accepted by everyone. You cannot get everyone to agree with you no matter what you do.  Sometimes, you just have to see that change is the only option. This works with conflict and strives as well as it does with bad ideas. If you continue to press and press, you will only anger yourself. And the angrier you get the more ineffective you become in your communication skills.

Anger is a serious problem that tends to envelop those who are considering divorce or who are divorcing. Across the country some certified providers of anger management are using their skill not necessarily to stop the divorce but to help couples go through the divorce process with less conflict.  Less conflict has a monetary value because the ability to resolve matters easily can mean  a reduction of thousands or maybe tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

Some individuals have also been seeking anger management to manage conflict to save their own marriage. To find an anger management provider in your area visit www.anger-management-resources.org

Anger management is a very forward focused class that teaches skills in anger management, stress management, communication skills and emotional intelligence. Some still carry the idea that anger management is for the court mandated or those who have been explosive in the recent past. This is simply a misconception.

Anger is a signal, therefore it is important that those who carry hostility or anger work with a professional anger management provider to determine what actions must be taken to respond to the signals instead of lashing out in anger at others. Therefore anger management may be appropriate for any individual or organization where the presenting problem is anger. It may be sign of increasing stress, poor emotional intelligence, poor communication skills or a combination of any or all of those factors. Anger management is therefore appropriate for:

  • Couples
  • Executives
  • Physicians
  • Individuals seeking self improvement
  • Court mandated
  • Those who are being treated by a mental health professionals but need further assistance to manage anger (this treatment must be combined)
  • Schools
  • Small and large businesses
  • Conflict resolution
  • Mediation
  • Adolescents
  • Jails or correctional institutions
  • Human resource professionals
  • Conduction anger management assessments

Anger management is a class that teaches skills not a mental health intervention. It is my hope that those who struggle with anger or know someone who struggles with anger will not choose to call the anger management provider because they are fearful that they will have to sit with a group of hardened criminals. This is simply not the case. Anger management providers across the country do offer private and group interventions, so rest assured that they will be able to facilitate your needs. Some may even visit your home or office. Visit www.anger-management-resources-org to find a provider in your area.

NB-Please note that anger management is not appropriate for those charged with domestic violence.

Recently in California an entire highway was closed as the result of “road rage”. There are daily reports of airport rage, child abuse, spousal abuse, homicide and “dog fighting”. Person and property-directed aggression is not just the “rage” it is a public health epidemic nationwide.

Take a look at these stats:More than 2 million people are knifed, shot, or otherwise assaulted each year in the United States.Physical violence between spouses occurs in 1/3 of all households.Each year thousands of children are killed or hurt due to child abuse.


Cock fighting and dog fighting is now being exposed.In spite of this increasing societal problem, there are no organized publicly supported efforts to prevent or stem the tide of the expression of unhealthy anger, rage and aggression.

The time has come for anger management classes in community Adult Education

As the leading provider of anger management/ executive coaching in the nation, Anderson & Anderson has been instrumental in assisting in the establishment of anger management classes in two community adult education classes.

In 1998, Grant Union High School (Sacramento, CA.) introduced free anger management classes in its Adult Education School for community residents.

The following year, Compton Unified School District introduced the Anderson & Anderson curriculum in its Adult Education Program. (Compton, CA.)Both of these school districts receive funding from the California State Department of Education. These classes are successful and well received by their respective communities. In spite of this, they have received little media attention and have not been replicated.

Los Angeles Unified School District, one the largest school districts in the nation has just launched anger management classes in twelve of its Adult High Schools. These courses will be expanded to the entire district as new providers are certified in the Anderson & Anderson Anger Management

Model.Anger management is a cost saving intervention both in terms of money, resources and lives. All school districts should incorporate anger management classes into its adult education programs.

Confronting the problems in our lives and living an authentic existence can be elusive for many. Some of us hate to confront the things that are enviably making us unhappy. We hear our emotions telling us that that we need to make changes in our job, marriage, health and life’s focus yet we ignore and AVOID these signals to our detriment.

All of us know intuitively what is good for us and what is not so good but for some it is just too hard to deal with the emotional upheaval that will result when we decide to make a change. However, no matter how we try to avoid change, our emotions signal the existence of problems through feelings of fear, anxiety, apprehension, frustration, exhaustion, depression and discomfort. Some fail to listen, and the result is a feeling of vulnerability and defensiveness.

This defensiveness creates hyper-vigilance. Such hyper-vigilance is like proverbially living with the hand on the gun. Any perceived attack by the outside world, whether it be from another driver, spouse, co-worker, pastor, friend, child, or the unsuspecting man on the street is viewed as an attack on the self and ANGER comes in to defend what beliefs and values we hold dear. This process all starts with avoidance, and while it is not the only way to explain anger, it is one of the ways that is associated with dreams being unfulfilled.
