AMSM Certified Anger Management Facilitators (CAMF) provide a comprehensive anger management program in a course of informative study and interactive discussion. The training includes techniques for coping with anger, tools for managing stress and difficult emotions, assertiveness skills, and methods of setting and respecting boundaries. Mindfulness and relaxation tools such as guided meditation and guided imagery are taught and practiced in the class sessions, as is Emotional Intelligence and self-care.
There are only a few obligations in the AMSM course. One, is to arrive at 6:00 pm ready to participate and learn tools for managing anger. Another is to follow the class guidelines for behavior, which include respecting the privacy of other class members, in and out of class, allowing time for everyone to speak, and refraining from using pointed sarcasm.
AMSM does not impose any attendance mandates. If a student misses Session VII, for example, they may still attend Session VIII. Students can repeat the course as many times as they like. Since many people do this, the material is presented with slight differences in each new course, to make it interesting for those who repeat sessions.
