George Anderson to present to the Long Beach Memorial Hospital

George Anderson to present to the Long Beach Memorial Hospital

Today November 14, 2012, George Anderson will present to the Long Beach Memorial Hospital Medical Staff.

This one-hour presentation is the same one that was presented to the American Medical Association’s Conference in Hawaii on November 9, 2012. The title of the presentation is “Emotional Intelligence for Disruptive Physician Behavior”.

Both presentations are a clear indication of the status of Emotional Intelligence For Impulse Control for Physicians in the United States. Any intervention that is approved for physicians is automatically considered legitimate/acceptable for the rest of the population.

Emotional Intelligence for Impulse Control/Disruptive Behavior is a current source of concern for HealthCare Organizations Nationwide.

Anderson & Anderson is considered the major organization for providing intervention for “disruptive physician behavior”.

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.
