Anger Management in Correctional and Court-Ordered Settings (2 CE Credits)

Presented by: Brittany Winters, Psy.D.

Location: Administration – 3450 N. 3rd Street, Phoenix 85012

Description:  Correctional and court-ordered populations present unique barriers to behavioral change.  Anger management treatment has been shown to be effective in reducing recidivism, decreasing problematic substance use, improving emotion regulation skills, and increasing interpersonal effectiveness among these populations.  In providing anger management interventions, clinicians must be competent in these populations' challenging treatment needs, and be able to effectively assess and intervene in addressing these needs utilizing the most current evidence-based models.  This course will introduce participants to an overview of anger management treatment strategies for managing correctional and court-ordered populations; clients with emotion regulation and/or behavior management concerns associated with aggression or violence; and effective clinical management of resistance to change in a correctional setting.
