What is Anger Management Trainer/Specialist Certification?
The Anger Management Institute offers certification in anger management for mental health counselors, social workers, pastors, educators, health professionals, probation and law enforcement officers, leaders and facilitators through our distance-learning courses and trainer certification workshops.
These programs provide participants with skills for teaching, coaching and counseling clients and students to manage their anger. The curriculum includes topics covering an overview of anger, assessment and progress tools, effective and research-based strategies for managing anger, 12-week guide for teaching groups or coaching individuals, marketing tips, facilitation skills and more!
Two designations are granted: Certified Anger Management Trainer with the Anger Management Institute (AMI) and Certified Anger Management Specialist-1 with the National Anger Management Association (NAMA).
How can I be certified?
Once you complete the live workshops or a DVD home-study program – you will be credentialed as a CAMT: Certified Anger Management Trainer through the Anger Management Institute.
After attending the workshops participants also qualify to become a National Anger Management Association “Anger Management Specialist-1” upon application and payment of the NAMA $100.00 membership fee. After successfully completing the AMI DVD training program participants need to take 4 phone supervision sessions (extra fee) with the Anger Management Institute. Then, participants may apply and pay the NAMA membership fee to receive the specialist designation.
