Course overview

The course contains a complete cognitive-based programme for introducing anger management to clients; teaching them ways of altering their thoughts, feelings and behaviour; educating them in reducing the impact of triggering thoughts or events, and improving social skills; developing cognitive and rational coping skills; developing a realistic philosophy of life; forgiving others; and avoiding recurrence of problem anger.

Different intervention plans are presented that can be used with different client groups, avoiding a “one size fits all” model. Sample client handouts, information sheets and step-by-step intervention schedules are provided.

Tips for managing the therapist’s own anger are also included: therapy can be a stressful profession. Therapists are only human and can have similar feelings to clients.

The main focus of the anger management plans is on self-referring adults or members of self-help or support groups. The course can also be a useful part of preparation for dealing with non-self-referring groups (clients referred by employer, courts, family, etc., adolescents and clients with learning disabilities) though further specialist training and/or professional backup is highly recommended for those categories as their motivation is likely to be lower and they may have more complex issues.

Entry criteria and suitability 

This course is for therapists, counsellors, coaches and other helping professionals who would like a source of practical knowledge for helping clients to control and manage their anger.  It is suitable for one-to-one practice or as a resource for group leaders. The course may also be taken for personal interest.



Successful graduates will receive the Diploma in Anger Management awarded by UK College of Holistic Training which is a private UK qualification. The college is accredited by the International Association for Distance Learning. Course graduates may use the postnominal initials Dip. Anger Mgt.

The course is accredited by The Institute for Meridian Psychotherapy (which is linked to UKCHT) for professional development purposes (see societies page for explanation).

This diploma is accepted by Calamus International University (a non-UK, private distance university with private accreditation) for credit towards a degree.
