Frequently I receive inquires about the dynamics of anger management, costs, dates and times available, and topics covered. Very seldom do clients ask about the anger assessment. I always make it clear to the caller regardless of where one decides to receive anger management services find out if the provider completes an anger assessment or not. An anger assessment provides clients and the anger management specialist the areas they need to focus on during group and/or individual secessions. Please be informed an intake and interview is not an anger assessment.
At the Anger Management Institute of Texas we complete the Conover anger management assessment on every client during intake. The assessment measures the client skills in six areas: interpersonal assertion, interpersonal deference, interpersonal aggression, empathy, stress management, and personal change orientation.
