Building trust in the therapeutic relationship is pivotal. As self-regulation hinges on knowledge, education about anger and discovery of the client’s personal anger patterns or ‘anger signature’ are facilitated. Much is done to augment self-monitoring and to encourage the moderation of anger intensity. As tension or strain may often surface in the course of treatment, the therapist models and reinforces non-anger alternative responding so as to build replacements for the automatized angry reactions that had been the client’s default coping style.

G. Berkowitz, 1993). That category distinction seeks to differentiate aggressive behaviour that is enacted for the purpose of doing harm/damage to the attacked person/target, from aggression that is motivated by non-injurious goals, such as economic gain or status enhancement.

Other re-labellings of this distinction, such as ‘annoyance-motivated’ versus ‘incentive-motivated’ or ‘reactive’ versus ‘pro-active’ have been offered.

This analysis by Howells and Day is insightful, particularly as it removes the onus of the problem from the dispositional status of the client. In this regard, we utilize a treatment ‘preparatory phase’ to foster engagement, develop core competencies necessary for treatment (emotion identification, self-monitoring, communication about anger experiences, and arousal reduction), and build trust in the therapist, providing an atmosphere conducive to personal disclosure and collaboration.
