International anger expert Dr. Ron Potter-Efron will have your clinical toolbox overflowing with proven anger strategies for long-term change of aggressive, raging and violent behaviors. In this brand new workshop, Ron will bring together neuroscience and a powerful range of anger treatment plans to change the brains and behaviors of your most challenging clients.
