How do you “make” a violent individual, and what are the implications for both prevention and treatment, using a life-span perspective? This workshop will demonstrate how to use evidence-based interventions with angry and aggressive children, adolescents and adults. A major focus will be on ways to bolster generalization and maintenance of treatment effects.
The focus will be on the cognitive-behavioral treatment of affective disorders (anxiety, depression, and anger). Such procedures as cognitive restructuring, problem-solving, and stress inoculation training will be examined.

This workshop presents a theory of emotion and model for therapy, founded on the positive view that emotions offer us opportunities to realign with our inherent wholeness, once disruptions occur. The key lies in resolving the destabilizing effects of emotion with a stabilizing emotional and psychological strength. With fear, the strength is personal power, for example. The workshop includes principles and interventions. A map of emotion illustrates the arc of its occurrence from stimulus and effect to regulation and resolution.
Ericksonian hypnotic techniques, potentiated by music, can help the angry patient learn a nonreactive relationship to their anger. The science of music physiology and research that supports the efficacy of recording your hypnosis will be presented. The legal and “fair use” of music on CD’s will be explained. Listening to hypnosis with music will allow attendees to experience this calming effect for themselves.
