New Approval Granted for AJ Novick Group

It is very difficult for providers in anger management to gain approval by probation departments and other governmental agencies. Our curriculum, entitled "Anger Management for the Twenty-First Century", which was co-authored by licensed clinical psychologist, Dr. Tony Fiore and myself, Ari Novick, M.A., was developed after a very extensive literature review of current and past research on the field of anger management. The effectiveness of this model is currently being evaluated, and the results to date are looking extremely promising for helping clients reduce aggressive and hostile behaviors as well as improve communication skills, developed better judgment and impulse control, learn how to forgive others, and increase empathy and emotional awareness.

The AJ Novick Group along received full approval by the California Department of Corrections (now called the Corrections Standards Authority) for the training of correctional staff, parole, probation officers and management using our curriculum and training materials. This govermental agency is considered to be one of the defining groups, where there are currently no state laws to regulate anger management providers or the materials used. They were extremely impressed with our model and newly developed training plan. Our Certification number is 03530-031088. This is very exciting news, as there are very few organizations that have received this type of approval in the field of Anger Management. This curriculum has also been recently approved by the National Anger Management Association, which is also exciting news.
