Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Veterans who have served in military armed forces are often more likely to report having difficulties with anger and aggression. Despite this higher prevalence, our understanding of these phenomena in veterans is still emerging. The aim of this review is to explore research evidence into the prevalence of anger and aggression in veterans and to answer questions relating to associations between anger, aggression and other factors such as demographics and health conditions. Finally, the review summarises our latest understanding of the availability and effectiveness of treatment interventions.
