The Anger Management Program
Violent behavior is often the result of stressful events that trigger the inability to control an overwhelming sense of anger. The Anger Management Program teaches a positive alternative to violence, and in turn helps to develop a healthy personality.
The Anger Management Map
The Anger Management Map is the core assessment in this program. The map looks at empathy, the ability to put oneself in someone else’s shoes. Assertion, the skill that helps people communicate effectively, honestly and appropriately is ranked, along with the opposite traits of aggression (anger) and deference (fear). Since stress is usually the trigger for anger, stress management is assessed. The map also emphasizes the importance of change orientation, which is the degree to which people are motivated for change. This scale is a reliable predictor of the potential for success through training.
The Skill Enhancements
