The Anderson & Anderson Anger Management Model Works

Dr. Steven Sinert, President of Nevada Anger Management conducted research on his Anger Management Practice in Henderson, Nevada and the results showed conclusively that the Anderson & Anderson Model works.

(PressMethod) - This study was undertaken from my private anger management practice utilizing the before and after averages using the Conover Assessment Examination which measures the following parameters:

1) Interpersonal Assertion: How good or comfortable the individual feels about telling others about their thoughts, feelings and behaviors in dealing with others:

Average pre-training score: 3.03;
Average post-training score: 5.30 (74.91% increase)

2) Empathy: How the individual views their current skill and ability to sense, understand and accept another person's thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

Average pre-training score: 4.38
Average post-training score: 5.35 (22.14 % increase)

3) Stress Management: Shows the individual's skill in managing stress and worry.

Average pre-training score: 3.97
Average post-training score: 5.05 (27.20% increase)

4) Aggression: The amount to which an individual uses a communications style that violates or offends or takes away another's rights, thoughts or feelings.

Average pre-training score: 2.82
Average post-training score: 0.62 (78.01% decrease)

5) Interpersonal Deference: A measurement of the degree to which an individual uses a personal communication style that tends to yield or give in to someone else, lets others have their way or gives their rights to others.

Average pre-training score: 2.61
Average post-training score: 1.71 (34.48% decrease)

6) No measurement of an individual's motivation was included in this study. It is recognized however that the greater the motivation the more likely the individual will be successful in achieving success.

Conclusion: From these findings it would appear that this Anger Management Program is very effective in increasing assertive skills, empathy, stress management and decreasing aggression and deference. These results are in no way a guarantee that any specific individual will respond the same way; however, they are a good indication that, on average, most individuals with anger issues will have a positive outcome from taking an anger management program taught by a Certified Anger Management Provider using the Anderson & Anderson model.
