Description: This course will familiarize learners with a 12-week cognitive behavioral anger management group treatment using cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for anger management. The treatment was designed for use with substance abuse and mental health populations with concurrent anger problems. Each of the 12, 90-minute weekly sessions is described in detail with specific instructions for group leaders, tables and figures that illustrate the key conceptual components of the treatment, and homework assignments for the group participants. An accompanying Participant Workbook is provided. (See Anger Management for Substance Abuse and Mental Health Clients: Therapy Manual and Participant Workbook: Reilly, Shopshire, Durazzo, & Campbell, 2002) The study will present four types of CBT interventions, theoretically unified by principles of social learning theory, most often used when treating anger disorders:
• Relaxation interventions, which target emotional and physiological components of anger.
• Cognitive interventions, which target cognitive processes such as hostile appraisals and attributions, irrational beliefs, and inflammatory thinking.
• Communication skills interventions, which target deficits in assertiveness and conflict resolution skills.
• Combined interventions, which integrate two or more CBT interventions and target multiple response domains (Deffenbacher, 1996, 1999).
