Some Anger Management Trainers/Professionals and Specialists would like to assess the EI of their clients. The Conover company and the Hay Group (Daniel Goleman) offer EI assessment. I don’t use Conover because of the expense and the complexity. Trainers might find the Hay Group resources and assessment more reasonable and flexible.
For anger management training and education- I think Trainers/educators need to focus on helping people identify and gain skills to better manage anger for acheiving personal and relational goals. Thus, I suggest teaching the empathy aspect of EI once individuals have grown in self-awareness and management.
We offer an empathy inventory in our books and workbooks. It is very practical and helps individuals identify their strengths and weaknesses on a personal basis.
