Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy that helps clients build skills and strategies for becoming and staying healthy. Numerous research studies suggest that CBT leads to significant improvement in functioning and quality of life. Anger is one of the primary emotions but has complexity associated with its expression. It serves a normal evolutionary function but can become maladaptive if the expression is out of context or excessive. It can produce distress and enhanced risk for the person and those around them. There is cultural, gender-based and societal variation in the regulation of anger expression. Cognitive behavioural approaches are the primary interventions for anger. Since many common mental health conditions may be associated with anger, there is an interaction between CBT for these conditions and the treatment of anger. This presentation will take a clinical and formulation-based approach to dysfunctional anger. Appropriate interventional approaches will be highlighted that can be applied to a wide variety of therapy settings.
