News Brief from Anderson & Anderson

May has been a remarkable month at Anderson & Anderson®. George Anderson, MSW, BCD, CAMF, trained 16 School Counselors in Fremont California, which resulted in 6 new Anger Management Pilot Programs in three High Schools, one Middle School, one Continuing Education Program, and an At Risk Program for Adolescents. All of these programs will be funded by the Alameda County Department of Health.

Dr. Thomas Wentz of the Anderson & Anderson faculty represented the firm at an all day conference in San Francisco sponsored by Public Defender, Jeffrey Adachi on Gang Violence. This was one of the best-attended and most successful conferences of this type held in California. Anderson & Anderson is in negations to conduct a pilot anger management gang prevention program in the San Francisco Area as a result of this conference.

In April and May, Anderson & Anderson has seen the largest number of Physicians referrals for Executive Coaching. While most have been to our Brentwood Office, two have been in Texas and one in Indiana. Information regarding our Anger Management/Executive Coaching for physicians routinely appears in references on the website of the Joint Commission on The Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

At the request of the largest Hospital Client Corporation, Anderson & Anderson will expand its Executive Coaching/Anger Management for Physicians to include “boundaries training” for mandated physicians.

The new workbook “Practice of Control, Anger Management/Executive Coaching for Physicians” will be introduced to the public within the next three weeks. This publication by George Anderson will be the first book of its kind to focus exclusively on help for “disruptive physicians”. Dr. Tom Wentz is the Editor of this publication.

George Anderson has been approached by the California Highway Patrol to provide on-site anger management at one of its regional offices for Uniformed Personnel.

Los Angeles based Southwest College has selected the Anderson & Anderson anger management curriculum for use in its Substance Abuse Counseling Program. The Anderson & Anderson model will be used as electives for this training.
