12. Problematic Anger

Problematic anger: Problematic anger and aggression are common problems for veterans and present a potential risk to others. The anger may well be treated as part of interventions for other disorders, such as PTSD or depression, but there may also be some benefit in using anger-specific interventions.

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) interventions can be effective. If family violence is involved, referral to a practitioner with expertise in the area or a family violence program is recommended.
