2013 Anger Management Los Angeles Provider List

Anger Management Provider List for Los Angeles County

Dear Colleagues,

As we all know, many courts have closed and many courts have reduced their staff including Court Clerks. For providers who rely totally on court referrals, it is probably best not to apply for the new 2013 list.

Anderson & Anderson has greatly expanded our presence on the Internet and is emerging as a leader in Emotional Intelligence Assessments as well as Emotional Intelligence Coaching. Therefore, we have decided to encourage and support providers who are invested in marketing their own programs to business and industry as well as Human Resource Managers in their areas.

This is what we will do for our new list of providers:

  • We will only list new providers who support and use Pre and Post Tests.
  • Most of the new providers are prepared to move into Coaching for volunteer referrals as well as Middle Managers and line staff from small business.
  • Most of the new staff share our vision of expanding our work by aggressively marketing both our assessment expertise as well as ability to offer coaching.
  • We have built a new website for the American Association of Anger Management Providers at
  • We are encouraging all providers to join and take advantage of the free full page ad for all members. Simply visit the website, download  the application for membership as well as the one free page for marketing purposes. Send in your check for Fellow, Regular Member or Diplomate status.
  • All providers who use the Bar On EQi 2.0 Emotional Intelligence Assessment will also receive a free listing on the regular section of the Anderson & Anderson Provider list.
  • George Anderson will present to the American Medical Association on November 9 in Hawaii. Naturally, this will benefit all Anderson & Anderson providers.

This is what you can do to make real money providing anger management

Emotional Intelligence Teaches Practical Skills for Anger Management

Emotional Intelligence Teaches Practical Skills for Anger Management

The major anger management curricula in the U.S. all use emotional intelligence as its’ core content.

In addition, most models of anger management include Pre and Post Assessments as well as client workbooks, DVDs , posters and other ancillary training material. The assessments are designed to determine the clients’ level of functioning in 15 competencies.

The Bar On EQ-i 2.0 Assessment Instrument measures:

  • Emotional Self-Awareness
  • Self Actualization
  • Self Regard
  • Independence
  • Assertiveness
  • Emotional Expression
  • Social Responsibility
  • Empathy
  • Interpersonal Relationships
  • Optimism
  • Stress Tolerance
  • Flexibility
  • Impulse Control
  • Reality Testing
  • Problem Solving
EQ-i2.0 Emotional Intelligence Model_
EQ-i2.0 Emotional Intelligence Model_














Since anger is not considered a pathological (DSM) condition, it should not be subjected to psychiatric interventions. Rather, the types of practical skill enhancement interventions that are common to the Social Work profession are more effective.

The four domains of emotional intelligence are: self-awareness, self-control, social awareness and relationship management. These are the topics which form the basis of the skills that are taught in anger management classes as well as coaching programs.

Programs using these Emotional Intelligence based curricula are being used in prisons, jails, schools, businesses as well as municipal governments. The latest trends are in the areas of civility training for attorneys who are mandated by state bar associations as well as “disruptive physicians” who are mandated by their hospital administrators. Finally, executive coaching/anger management programs are rapidly becoming the intervention of choice for skill enhancement in leadership.

An excellent summary of U.S. based anger management programs can be viewed in a BBC documentary entitled Losing It 2.  This two hour documentary was produced for the BBC by British Actor/Comedian, Griff Rhys Jones.
