"Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is …not easy"~ Aristotle

Anger is a normal emotion but when poorly managed can cause chaos in the medical workplace. It is widely recognized that patient safety and quality of care depend on good communication and teamwork. There is an increasing need for services to help doctors, and other health care workers, manage anger appropriately and communicate well.  Dr. Hudson is a trained anger management specialist and a Fellow of  the National Anger Management Association (NAMA). He is also an  anger management specialist certified by NAMA and Century Anger Management. We have found that most physicians and surgeons prefer individual coaching and education sessions over group sessions. Some distressed physician  programs  paint a picture of a physician out of control.  In our experience, when a physician is made aware of their anger and its impact, most are willing to make an effort to change their style of communication.
