Anger Management


Court Ordered/Certificate Program click here

The Stages of Change Anger Management Curriculum is based on the professional training method created by Anthony Fiore, PHD and Ari Novick, MA, LMFT. This Curriculum is approved by the California Department of Corrections, CAADAC, CAADE and numerous other professional organizations.

Uncontrolled anger is a major factor in domestic violence, and spousal abuse, aggressive driving violations, in workplace rudeness and disruption, marital conflicts and in family conflicts. The method we use to correct anger management issues is through education and cognitive behavioral modification. We teach 8 essential anger management tools and practical ways to apply them in daily life situations.

We educate clients on the costs of anger, in health, self-esteem, relationships, divesting effects on children and detriment in the workplace. The 8 core management skills known as tools we teach are the following.

Eight Anger Control Tools to learn

  1. Recognize Stress
  2. Develop Empathy
  3. Respond instead of React
  4. Change That Conversation
  5. Communicate Assertively
  6. Adjust Expectations
  7. Forgive but Donít Forget
  8. Retreat and Think Things Over

Our method of anger management teaches clients to become aware of bodily signs and symptoms which signal them that they are becoming stressed and need to look at their feelings, aware of their behaviors and apply the valuable new tools and skills they are learning. In addition, clients learn to evaluate the main stressors in their lives and practical ways to reduce the stress whenever possible. They learn to identify harmful patterns, take responsibility and handle conflict with a win-win approach to resolution.

Stages of Change offers additional counseling services and referrals for all types of addictions, drug testing services, Alcohol and Drug Assessments, and more. We will be happy to provide a detail curriculum upon request as well as answer any additional questions you may have at that time.

Anger expressed toward others is often a misguided way of communicating a feeling we have or a need that is not being satisfied by other people or situations.
