At this time (2020) there is no licensing requirement by the Georgia Secretary of State Office for Anger Management.

Anger Management and Domestic Violence (Family Violence) requires different Training and Certifications.

Domestic Violence / Domestic Family Violence laws do not apply to Anger Management.

Anger Management is not psychotherapy. Anger Management is psycho-education training and a highly personalized form of treatment. APA (LPC) Counselors take the same Certification Training* to offer Legitimate Anger Management Training to their client base that is Court Certified.

Anger Management does not seek to help those in need of counseling to find ways of avoiding their anger altogether. Identifying what makes you angry, how you feel about it, finding the source of your anger does not make you less angry.

According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a normal human emotion. It is not a mental disorder, consequently it is not responsive to traditional counseling, psychotherapy or psychotropic medication.

Anger is not listed in   The  Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders  (DSM) DSM5 as a mental disorder.

Anger Management is Psycho-Educational Coaching, Training, Teaching to educate the individual to the mechanism of anger, coping strategies to choose better behaviors for better outcomes. Learning about Stress Management, Improving Communication, Learning About Conflict Styles, Emotional Intelligence, and Cognitive Distortions helps individuals see that everyone can get angry. Healthy people know how to control anger so it doesn't destroy their interpersonal relationships at home, work or out in public.

Court Certified Anger Management legitimate programs are designed to positively reduce offender recidivism and increase public safety.


  • For Repeat Offenders 12 Classes over 12 weeks is suggested.
  • Severe Cases: 20-24 Hours Of Classes/once a week
  • For First Time Offenders depending on the severity of the charge: 8 to 12 Hours of Classes
  • For Minor Charges, you know the client is not guilty or it is not proven: 4 Hours Minimum of Classes

TIP: Using a check box for Anger Management on forms or assigning Anger Management without defining what is required, places the burden of determining the number of classes on the Anger Management Provider.

IMHO, I do not believe a One Hour Class provides enough contact for the person involved to learn anything to help themselves learn how to make better choices to not get arrested again.

Hence the 4 Hour/4 Classes minimum suggested. 90% of people, blame others and do not accept responsibility for their actions. This shifts during our program and people experience that a good Anger Management Program is worthwhile.

Participants are assigned 'One Class' or 'Take a Class'. This creates confusion as Our Anger Management Class/Course is a minimum of 8 hours of material and often extends to 12 hours or more. You do not attend any higher learning class for one hour and get your Certificate of Completion. Think about that. That would be considered a "joke" of a program. I do see people who say they got set-up by their lying partners or lying strangers and a mired of other stories that blame others. I assume at least some are true.

But One Hour Class?

Most Anger Management Models are based on psycho-education in four core competencies of Anger Management, Stress Management, Improved Communication Using Assertiveness and Active Listening, and Emotional Intelligence. We add Cognitive Restructuring.

Anger Management has moved from the basic idea of management of anger to a broader understanding of the relationship between anger, stress, communication, and Emotional Intelligence: self-awareness, self management, social awareness, and relationship management. This provides the client with self understanding (awareness), learning to control one’s emotions, social awareness for better interactions and more productive relationship management.

Other compentencies as seen below include: Self-Regard, Self Actualization, Emotional Self-Awareness, Emotional Expression, Assertiveness, Independence, Interpersonal Relationships, Empathy, Social Responsibility, Problem Solving, Reality Testing, Imuplse Control, Flexibilty, Stress Tolerance, and Optimism. In most cases reduced recidivism is also achieved.
