Distance learning is a relatively new form of learning and referral sources such as courts, probation departments and human resources want to know if this type of learning is as effective as “real world” classroom learning. 

There is growing evidence in research literature that online learning is as effective or even more effective than traditional learning environments. Even though distance learning is still in its infancy, the preliminary information is showing that online learning is providing a cost-effective, rich and diverse means of learning for students.

Shouldn’t there be interaction or a human component for learning anger management?
There IS a human component to this program. Our students interact with the facilitator through emails, through online chats and intensive work on the discussion board. The discussion board is continuously monitored by the facilitator.

Why Should I Refer People To AngerManagementOnline.com And Accept The Program As Satisfactory?
Online education offers a variety of advantages over traditional forms of face-to-face programs: 

  1. Online programs are usually less expensive than traditional programs. This makes clients less resistant to take a program. 
  2. Programs are self paced. Clients can log in and out on their schedule.
  3. Our material is written for all levels of education. It is practical advice and it makes sense.
  4. Dr. Kathy S. Garber is available to guide the client through the program and answer questions 7 days a week.
  5. The anger management class is current and relevant.
  6. Students are much more one on one accountable for their participation. There is no day dreaming while someone else is talking. The client needs to prove that they understand anger management and show growth in the program.

How was the curriculum developed?
After doing individual therapy and anger management groups for years I began to understand what clients needed in an anger management program. The techniques used in this program were implemented first in a face-to-face program. I brought this program online as a means of offering affordable anger management and making clients more accountable for personal change. Making someone personally accountable to receive a certificate of completion is much different than sitting quietly in a room of people pretending to be interested. We help people get excited about changes their lives and living in positive solutions. We build self esteem and coach people to get excited about their lives. This is definitely not a passive program. This is a program of accountability.
