Interpersonal violence has many faces and many namesódomestic violence, child abuse, school bullying. Anger, Aggression, and Interventions for Interpersonal Violence reveals what clinical scientists know and what mental health practitioners can do about interpersonal violence. To advance the way professionals conceptualize interventions for violent clients, contributors consider the complex relation between anger and aggression and discuss how that relation affects treating various forms of interpersonal violence. Should treatment focus on anger, on aggression, or on both? Does that decision depend on the form of interpersonal violence, or does the anger-aggression relation suggest a core set of intervention principles and strategies?
Readers are provided up-to-date, detailed discussions as well as focused commentaries, all written by internationally known researchers. This volume will serve as a comprehensive guide for researchers and practitioners alike.
"This volume makes an important contribution to our understanding of anger and aggression...The chapters are written by accomplished researchers with a wealth of clinical experience and a tremendous understanding of the issues and relevant literatures. It is a tremendous resource for practitioners and researchers interested in understanding and treating the pervasive problems of anger and aggression."
