Anger Management for Physicians

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 Management Coaching for Physicians

Coaching for Physicians and Patrick Hudson MD have developed an individual anger management course for doctors, dentists and healthcare workers. It is usually a 12 week program that is primarily psycho-educational.  If completed satisfactorily,  you will be provided a letter confirming attendance and completion of the program. If you need information about managing a disruptive physician or have been called a  disruptive physician, check out:

I was sent by the State of California… to remedy a series of complaints (about) my manner which was felt to be: rude (and) unsympathetic…I did not look forward to speaking with Dr. Hudson as an "anger management" remedy…I came to look forward to speaking with Dr. Hudson…I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Patrick Hudson as an excellent choice to help physicians weather this age of: politically correct speech and behavior…I am confident that you will be happy with your choice of Dr. Hudson as your "coach" for physician’s attitudes in this age of unfettered criticism. Orthopedic Surgeon/California

Dr. Hudson is a Fellow of  the National Anger Management Association (NAMA) and an anger management specialist certified by the NAMA. He is also able to speak with program directors, medical boards, hospital administrators, or employers to confirm satisfactory attendance.

The program is usually a one-on-one program and most sessions can be completed by telephone or video link, like Skype or WebEx. In this way  physicians living at a distance can complete the program with fewer visits to Albuquerque and less disruption to their work schedule. Sessions  can be at your office at Dr. Hudson’s discretion (additional fee applies) .

At Coaching for Physicians we have found that most physicians prefer individual sessions over group sessions.  There are several reasons for this. Physicans are high-profile clients and as a public figure he or she may wish to protect their status. As a rule they do not like to reveal things about themselves publicly and prefer private sessions, even if more expensive.

During the program you will be required to keep an anger diary and complete a number of exercises and readings.You may be provided with a booklet of exercises, depending on your needs, as determined during your first visit and evaluation. In his  program, Dr. Hudson often incorporates mindfulness training and remedial coaching as part of your anger management care. 

The program will cover most of the following topics but the order may vary:
