Anger Managment

    High intensity work or work environments can cause good people to show their worst sides.  Sometimes the pressure to succeed and delivery can manifest in negative displays of anger that cause disruption workplace dysfunction.  DB Pargman’s Anger Management services provide a forum for processing the root causes of demonstrations of anger and provides specific techniques and protocols for managing and mitigating anger in the workplace.

    What to do after someone is told to they need to “get a grip and calm down?”  A person with an anger issue may know they have “an ager issue” and  they may ben know they “should be careful.”  However, providing the skills and the tools to actually manage and handle anger is something rarely provided or offered at work.  We provide a skills based approach to understanding the sources of one’s anger and the techniques to help your person manage it.

    What clients say about DB Pargman's Trainings . . .

    Finding different ways to deal with difficult people and watching the role plays were very useful part of the training

    I really liked the “buttons” exercise!

    At this training I learned that conflict does not have to always be a negative thing.

    This training exceeded my expectations!  The trainer was engaging and lively and I learned that conflict can be a misunderstood and sometimes it can be healthy and normal as long as you work through the conflict.

    Outstanding value, subject matter and trainer – I thought it was perfect.

    All the information is useful.  It can also be used in my own personal life!!  Great Job!!!

    I learned ways to improve communication to help prevent misunderstandings and misinterpretations.

    You opened the eyes of our leadership.  I just adored the personality of the trainer, she was easy to relate to and effective in making her points.  

    The subject matter was outstanding.  The reference card you gave us at the end was helpful to remember what we learned.

    The best part was the facilitator’s ability to deliver some of the difficult points and to answer some of the sticky questions.

    This training was OUTSTANDING!
    It was the best 6 hours of my life!  This is the longest anyone has ever listened to me.
    This training should be MANDATORY before any physician is employed at (my hospital). 

    FAQ's for Anger Management

    Q: What benefits do Trainees receive at a Anger Management Training?

    A: Our 1-1 AMT is a skill-building, educational investment in your Key Person. It is NOT punitive, judgmental, blame-seeking or negative in anyway. Your Key Person will emerge having had the opportunity to process the incident and take big steps to putting it behind them and returning their focus to their work while at the same time learning specific technologies help them manage their expression of anger.

    Q: What is covered in the Anger Management Training?

    A: While the program will be individualized to meet the needs and experience of the Trainee and any particular incident that may have prompted the Training, the core of the Anger Management Training involves (a) the personal inventory and review of a particular incident or experience, if relevant, (b) an opportunity for the Trainee to process and explain their experience in a non-judgmental environment, and introduction of specific technologies and exercises for the Trainee to incorporate into their work life to reduce and manage their anger.

    Q: What are the specific technologies?

    Our Anger Management Training is based on university research into Mindfulness and Contemplative Studies.  Scientific research into brain functionality is presented utilizing examples of images from Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) that illustrate brain function behind and about anger.  Contemplative practice exercises are taught to equip Trainee with specific tools.  Trainees leave with both an understanding of science and a toolbox of skills to help manage anger.
