Develop the skills & confidence to defuse and transform angry clients

Anger is the single most destructive element in life...

It has the power to destroy relationships both personal and professional.

Prolonged anger poisons our bodies and can lead to depression and violence.

Virtually all clients who pursue therapy are intensely angry with one or more people in their lives.

Unfortunately, most clinicians are not trained to deal with anger directly. We’re taught that if we help clients resolve their problems, the anger will disappear. Unfortunately, this approach often results in prolonged therapy with uncertain results.

To successfully work with those needing help for anger management, you must understand anger...

...And know how to use each individual’s unique background, family system, and other factors to untangle their complex relationships with anger.

In this online certification training course, you’ll get proven strategies and dozens of helpful resources to help you transform anger into something your clients can use to become calmer and happier.

To your great success,

Dr. Jeff Peterson, Ph.D., LCPC, LPC, NCC, PCC

BONUS! When you complete this course, you’ll be immediately eligible to become a Certified Specialist in Anger Management (CSAM). And we’ll even cover the cost of certification for your first year (a $149.99 value)!
