Ian Brennan

*Ian Brennan has successfully trained tens of thousands of people across the country in violence prevention, anger-management, and conflict resolution since 1993 at shelters, schools, hospitals, clinics, and drug-treatment nationwide including such prestigious organizations as the Betty Ford Center, Bellevue Hospital (NYC), and Stanford University.

Ian Brennan‘s presentations are consistently reviewed as “the best” of their kind and, when studied, frequently demonstrate significant reductions in aggressive incidents, complaints, and injuries (e.g., one 1996 study revealed a more than 50% reduction in such episodes and was written up on the front page of The Tribune).

These trainings are based on his over 15 years experience working as a mental health specialist in locked, acute-psychiatric settings, the job rated as the most dangerous in the state of California. From 1991 to 2001, Ian Brennan conducted psychiatric triage-interviews in the county emergency-room for Oakland, CA (one of the busiest in the country).

Additionally, Ian Brennan works throughout the United States providing one-on-one, anger-management sessions for individuals facing criminal charges for violent conduct, and, relatively, regularly provides expert testimony in such cases.
