Anger Management for Healthcare Professionals Program

This course is designed to help those physicians and healthcare providers who have contributed to a disruptive working environment by way of inappropriate expression of anger. Conflict, stress and disruption in the hospital and clinic setting create low morale, heightened rates of staff turnover, and patient safety concerns.

The Anger Management for Healthcare Professionals program is a small, (6-8 participants), intensive and highly interactive three day course taught by UC San Diego faculty from the Department of Psychiatry. Participant coursework in the form of self-reported inventories of mood and interpersonal conflict as well as reading is required.

The objectives and goals of this course include:

  • Aiding participants to identify triggers in the workplace leading to disruptive behavior.
  • Didactic instruction providing constructive tools and strategies to aid in diffusing and managing anger and conflict in an appropriate and professional manner including:
    • Increasing Emotional Intelligence
    • Empathy Training
    • Transforming conflict into cooperation
  • Practicing both behavioral and cognitive strategies, including coping mechanisms, leading to healthier communication and interactions in the healthcare environment.
  • Developing a personalized plan of action (Commitment to Change)

PACE provides a dynamic training program that offers professionals an opportunity to obtain educational information and personalized assessment in a highly sensitive, supportive and confidential environment away from the workplace.
