Anger Management Group in Hackensack, NJ and Sarasota, FL

Participants can be mandated or voluntary; usually the group is about 50%/50%.  Participants may choose to join this group due to relationship problems, job problems, legal problems, domestic violence or simply because they are uncomfortable with their anger level or how they express anger.  The goal for the group is for patients to both decrease the intensity of their anger feelings and to be able to express anger in constructive pro-social ways. The group sessions that take place in Hackensack are for men only, while the group that is in Sarasota is co-ed. 


At its base, the group covers the concepts from the cognitive-behavioral Anger Management treatment manual published by SAMHSA (the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Agency).   Beyond this, the group offers psychological perspectives on anger as it relates to issues of self-esteem, communication, parental modeling, substance abuse, psychiatric disorders and trauma. 


The group is small and highly interactive--participants bring in their weekly experiences and subject them to analysis and group discussion.  The group is normally completed in 12 sessions, though some participants stay longer for either legal or personal reasons.


In NJ, the group meets every Wednesday from 6pm to 7pm at the Center.  Weekly attendance is required for completion. The group facilitator is Elaine Peguero, LCADC.

In FL, the group meets every Monday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm at the Center.  Weekly attendance is required for completion. The group facilitator is Brett Sondag, MA RMHI.

  • All prospective group members must have an Intake Assessment by Elaine Peguero/Brett Sondag  prior to entering the group.

  • The patient must commit to 12 consecutive weekly groups.The group is offered only in units of 12.  It doesn’t make a difference whether the patient is voluntary or mandated.  It doesn’t make a difference if the patient is mandated for a lesser number of sessions.

  • A letter of completion will be issued only after completion of the 12th session.

  • Patients are permitted 2 absences (to be made up by adding sessions at the end).  After a third absence, the patient is discharged from the group.  Discharged patients do not get a letter of any sort and may not re-apply for the group.

  • Prior to the 12th session, a letter of participation will be issued only for a patient’s court date (patient must provide documentation). This letter will indicate that the patient has not completed the program and still needs treatment.
