Many universities are now offering students distance learning programs which greatly benefit students who may live in areas quite geographically distant. Anger Management is following the same societal trend, with new online programs being produced by providers across the country. As is true in any new industry, quality control is an issue, so "buyer beware" seems to be a good motto to follow. Century Anger Management takes pride in having developed on online program which is technically state-of-the-art and contains exactly the same material that we use in our local classes. This material has been approved by the Orange County Probation Department for use in one of our local programs; the Orange County Probation department is currently reviewing our online program also for approval.
Our 8-tool model of anger management which is contained in the online program is also approved by the California Department of Corrections for the training of probation and parole officers. Our model of anger management is now used across the nation, from Alaska to Florida and in some other countries such as the Bahamas, Cuba, Malaysia and China. It is the model of choice for many probation departments, social service agencies, church anger management programs, the Salvation Army, and private companies.
We predict that other probation departments and courts across the land will develop criteria for approval of online programs, as the need is so great. When that happens, the Century Anger Management program (marketed as angercoachonline.com and angerclassonline.com) will be poised to apply for approval and continue to provide leadership in this new information-technology world.
There are providers out there who feel that onlines programs should not be approved. We could not disagree more. Quality and professionally produced online anger management programs are the wave of the future and will provide another vehicle for anger control in our world which ultimately will benefit all of society.
