About the Course:

This must book for practicing professionals consists of seven clearly written, practical guides to the understanding, treatment and management of clients’ anger. The authors have even devoted a chapter to aid the therapist in dealing with his/her anger, a frequent occurrence when working in this difficult area. The first section consists of four chapters dealing with basics: Anger, The Anger Episode Model, Assessment and Diagnosis, and an overview of the Anger Management Program. These chapters, unlike some practical presentations, presents issues with both experiential and research support with a strong sense of history as well. In section two, three chapters deal with preparing the client for change. This is followed in section three with five chapters dealing with the process of change, including physical arousal, skills building, and new ways of problem solving. This is really the heart of the work and is presented with excellent examples and concrete steps for the therapist. Chapters 13-15 work with the necessary cognitive component for anger management without which treatment may never reach completion. The final three chapters address relapse prevention, the therapist’s anger, and finally, a sample treatment program.

This course is based on the book, Anger Management: The Complete Treatment Guidebook for Practitioners created by Howard Kassinove, Ph.D., and Raymond Chip Tafrate, Ph.D.
