Statement to Consumers of our Organization
As a consumer to Anger Management, we recognize it is important to make an informed, educated decision when deciding on choosing a provider for classes, training or education. We would like our current, potential, and future consumers to clearly understand our mission, core values, objectives and partner relationships.
The Anger Coach, AJ Novick Group and our training organization, Century Anger Management provides high quality education, training, and client services in the field of Anger Management.
We have the following Core Values:
- We act with integrity and honesty at all times.
- We are passionate about providing quality education and training to our consumers.
- We are open and respectful to others and dedicated to making them better.
- We are willing to embrace challenges and see them through.
- We are committed to providing excellent service to the public and continually strive to improve.
- We hold ourselves accountable for commitments and firmly stand behind our model of intervention, our advertising to the public, and our commitment to consumers.
Our model of intervention, developed by Dr. Tony Fiore, Ph.D. and co-authored by Ari Novick, M.A was published in January 2005. In the absence of state laws regulating anger management providers, we gained some very important approvals that validate the usage of our model and training. Our model is approved by the California State Board of Corrections (Certificate # 03530-031088) for the training of Probation, Parole Officers and Corrections staff. It is also approved for CEUs for LCSWs and LMFT’s by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS PCE# 3128) and CAADE (CP10704C1105), California. The National Anger Management Association also approves our model and training
Our organizations are affiliated with the National Anger Management Association (NAMA, www.namass.org). This organization is new and is one of two organizations promoting the field of Anger Management. The National Anger Management Association is a newly growing, credible and legitimate, professional association organization in the field of Anger Management. Having two professional organizations helps all providers gain more exposure to the public, regardless of the model of intervention used. We believe in having more than one voice for professionals in the field of Anger Management in order to service the public and give choices and alternate approaches to consumers. Consumers need to be aware that there are various approaches and models to anger management and no single model or intervention has national or international legal acceptance by any Federal or State agency to date.
“The National Anger Management Association is an independent, non-profit, professional organization for the advancement of anger management services, research, and professional provider community”. It takes time for national recognition to take place for any new organization, and for a provider list to grow. This is a normal part of development for any new business or organization.
