Anger involves a larger concept: Hostility. Hostility includes emotional, attitudinal and behavioral components: anger, cynicism and aggression/violence. Four types of CBT interventions, theoretically unified by principles of social learning theory will be reviewed as treatments for anger and violence: relaxation and cognitive interventions, irrational beliefs and inflammatory thinking, communication skills interventions and conflict resolution skills.
