Anderson & Anderson, APC provided Emotional Intelligence Coaching for Impulse Control to a 62-year-old attorney who had been in psychoanalysis for 25 years for problems managing his anger. While he was an expert on where his first angry feelings came from and how they related to an incident with his mother at age 6, his ability to control his angry behavior had not improved during his many years of psychoanalytic treatment.
