Professional Diploma In Anger And Stress Management
6 Month Course Curriculum
The Anger Academy is the new training arm of the British Association of Anger Management (BAAM).
To support and encourage individuals to recognize that the healthy expression
of anger is a powerful opportunity for healing and transformation.
BAAM was founded in January 2001 by Mike Fisher.
We offer an experiential learning training, teaching trainees to coach and facilitate groups and individuals to manage the negative forces of stress and anger in all aspects of people’s lives. Our pyscho-educational training courses are designed for people to find healthy solutions when dealing with the many emotional obstacles that they encounter, if not create.
Our most popular and effective programmes, BA1 and BA2 have fulfilled this criteria for many years and continues to do so as the need for anger and stress management services grow exponentially across the world.
The Anger Academy, in affiliation with BAAM, is very excited to offer a powerful new training programme for individuals that have identified a need or demand for Anger and Stress workshops in their community or workplace. This six-month Diploma training will cover the fundamentals of anger and stress management enabling trainees to offer courses to a wide market audience facilitating group work, adults, couples, families, teenagers, and children.
BAAM has trained over 210 Anger and Stress specialists in the UK and abroad.
Agression Prevention Training
The Aggression Prevention Training Model (APT) developed by the Founder of BAAM, Mike Fisher, is a totally unique approach to the management of stress and anger. The APT model evolved out of Mike’s own individual therapy, pyscho-educational training, research and extensive study of the subject. The APT model embraces ‘The Gift’ of stress and anger as one of the cornerstones for transforming relationships into authentic healthy experiences with oneself and others.
The APT model embraces a variety of psychological interventions to teach participants how to identify their sources and triggers of anger and to understand how unconscious forces influence behaviour which contribute to the mis-management of stress and anger.
The goal of the APT model is to:
1. Identify destructive patterns entrenched in primitive and archaic behaviours that were initially developed in order to fundamentally keep us safe in the world.
2. Achieve in a short time frame:
- a commitment to change, mindfulness and radical self acceptance.
3. Identify one’s own traumatic experiences that shape unconscious behaviours, rigid defense mechanisms, limiting self-beliefs and destructive thought patterns that tend to hinder our purpose and growth potential.
Other important aspects of the APT model involve learning brand new skills and changing destructive patterns of behavior through the recognition and understanding of our psychological imperatives, cognitive dissonances, private logic and the healing of historical traumatic occurences.
When the APT model is consistently applied to our relationships it has the potential to be profoundly transformative and healing. This has been supported by post course effectiveness statistics.
3% of previous participants said ‘waste of time and money’.
15% of previous participants said ‘It works when I work it’.
82% of previous participants said ‘even after 18 months it’s still working’.
BAAM will do a new course effectiveness survey in Sept 2016.
Referrals tend to come from a wide range of companies and government bodies such as the NHS, Doctors, Police & Court services, children's fund, schools, colleges, youth offending teams, probation services, social services. As well as NGO’s such as national charity’s, Relate, MIND, Sane Line, Samaritans. However, most enquiries tend to be self referrals from individuals desperate to save their relationships or careers.
