History: The Anger Management Institute’s resources are based on the seminars Lynette Hoy began presenting in 1998 to groups and counselors. Lynette Hoy, NCC, LCPC, CAMS-V, and Ted Griffin, Editor/writer, co-authored all four editions of What’s Good About Anger? The premise of the books, DVDs and courses demonstrate that anger – though often destructive – is a normal emotion and energy which can be transformed into effective behaviors achieving healthy personal and relationship goals. The first edition of What’s Good About Anger? presents a Christian perspective on anger management. The Second, Third and now Fourth editions are geared for a general readership. The new 2016 Fourth edition expands on emotional intelligence, the physiology of anger, art of apology and when to take a break.
Lynette and Steve have presented various workshops and classes over the years. Trainer’s conferences are offered annually providing CEs for professionals. Lynette Hoy, the President of the Institute and CounselCare Connection, P.C. – has authored various training manuals and courses for professionals, adults and teens.
