Cognitive Control Training and Anger Symptoms

Study Description

Impact of Cognitive Control Training on Anger Symptoms and Reactive Aggression

High trait anger is a personality construct characterized by elevations in the frequency, duration, and intensity of anger episodes. According to many social cognitive theories, hostile interpretations of everyday situations contribute to the development and maintenance of anger symptoms. This study will examine the effectiveness of a computer-based cognitive control training task.
