Anger Disorders Scale

Raymond DiGiuseppe, Ph.D. , Raymond Chip Tafrate, Ph.D.


Measure dysfunctional anger by assessing as an independent problem rather than as a secondary symptom in adults


The ADS measures clinically dysfunctional anger by assessing anger as an independent problem, rather than as a secondary symptom of another issue. Its Anger-In/Anger-Out model examines the cognitions associated with anger that may be a part of affective aggression. The results provide a strong basis for developing appropriate intervention and treatment plans.

Key Areas Measured

  • Provocations Domain
  • Arousal Domain
  • Cognitions Domain
  • Motives Domain
  • Behaviors Domain
