Course Description: Anger, violence, and associated traumatic stress can often correlate with the initiation of drug and alcohol use and can be a consequence of substance use.

The anger management treatment design presented in this course was developed to provide clinicians with tools to help clients who have substance use and mental health problems learn to deal with their co-occurring anger management problems. The group treatment model described in this course has been delivered to thousands of clients over the past three decades and has been popular with both clinicians and clients.

The course has two parts. Part 1 is the Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy Manual. It describes a 12-week cognitive–behavioral anger management group treatment model. Each of the 12, 90-minute weekly sessions is described in detail with specific instructions for group leaders, tables and exhibits that illustrate the key conceptual components of the treatment, and between-session challenges for group members. The format of the manual lends itself to use in a variety of clinical settings and can be adapted to accommodate different racial-ethnic minority groups and genders and diverse treatment settings.

Part 2 is the Participant Workbook. The workbook is designed to be used in conjunction with Part 1 to enable group members to better learn, practice, and integrate the treatment strategies presented in the manual.

The material in this course may be used by clinicians who work with clients who have substance use and mental health problems co-occurring with anger management problems and has also been used by individuals for self-paced study outside of a group counseling setting (e.g., by individuals who are incarcerated).
