David W. Earle, LPC uses a series of imaginary counseling sessions between a therapist and a client to communicate in a personal and effective manner the concepts and skills needed to appreciate the emotion of anger and to use it effectively. The folksy, conversational approach may take 'text book oriented clinicians' a few pages to get comfortable, but the approach works--making learning effective and easy to apply in counseling sessions. Using the narrative of the counseling sessions, illustrations and models, the author transforms complicated concepts into words and skills, clinicians will find valuable.
Upon completion of this course, the clinician will be able to:
- Explain to others the critical importance of anger
- Teach others about The Mood Chart and how it can help them manage their moods
- Demonstrate the T.I.E. -- Anger Management Model
- Explain the relationship between emotions and thoughts
- Help others gain greater personal freedom by increasing their emotional management
- Help others use 'Thumb Work' instead of 'Finger Work' to manage anger
- Explain the benefits of having intellect manage behavior vs emotion managing behavior
- Illustrate how belief, thoughts, behavior, and results interact and relate to one another.
