  • Step-by-step solutions for transforming the harmful poisons of anger, fear, and righteousness into self-awareness, compassion, and long lasting behavioral change
  • Help the client not just “handle” anger but to use that anger as a path toward deeper self-awareness, self-acceptance, and virtue
  • Jumpstart the hard clinical work of anger management using an original, four-session mindfulness path to motivate change

Anger management expert and author, Dr. Pavel Somov has created a four session anger management program for these difficult to treat clients. This humanistic and solution-focused approach introduces four core mindfulness-powered change modalities: Impulse Control Training, Choice Awareness Training, Symbolic Threat Inoculation and Somatic Emotional Self-Regulation Training. These sessions are designed to quickly capitalize on the clinical encounter and make the most clinical mileage out of short-term anger management treatment. Jumpstart your practice and gain the skills necessary to frame clinical objectives in a motivationally-enhanced, ego-syntonic and nonthreatening manner.

You will also explore six anger management interventions for long-term treatment clients, including those with the latest research findings in neuroscience on mirror neurons. End the day with a discussion of various Eastern methods of keeping calm and cultivating compassion.
