Prison Re-entry Programs in California are needed in all of California Counties. Popular designations such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and San Jose are favored locations for trainings in almost any topic or discipline. Rural communities such as Brawley, El Centro, Hollister or even Fresno are frequently ignored at significant costs to these and similar locations. This pattern of neglect is common throughout the U.S.
Two of the required interventions for all re-entry programs in California are Anger Management Classes and/or coaching provided by Certified Anger Management Facilitators (CAMF) and Batterer’s Intervention Facilitator Certification for domestic violence perpetrators (CDVF). There are few trainers in the state that are approved providers of these two certifications.
The largest provider of these two certifications in the U.S. that is approved by Probation, Parole, Department of Corrections, Courts, Schools and Social Service Agencies is Anderson & Anderson, APC. This model includes Pre and Post Assessments along with client workbooks.
Providers from Sacramento Unified School District, McAlister Institute of El Centro, California as well as Plumas County Rural Services have been trained in this curriculum. The Cocopah and Quechan Tribes of Yuma, Arizona as well as the Karuk Tribe in Northern California have also sponsored our trainings in their respective communities/reservations.
In response the requests from the Faith Community in Yuma, Arizona and Imperial County California, Anderson & Anderson, APC has decided to present its’ Anger Management Facilitator Certification Training in Brawley, Ca. on October 18,19, 20, 2018.
