This chapter discusses the management of anger in people with intellectual disabilities. Many factors combine to make it particularly difficult for people with intellectual disabilities to control their anger, including impairments of social cognition and communication and exposure to negative experiences such as stigmatization and bullying. Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is being used increasingly with people with intellectual disabilities, most notably in relation to interventions for anger. This chapter reviews studies of anger management groups for people with learning disabilities and a large-scale randomized controlled trial that is currently in progress. In addition, barriers to engagement with CBT for people with learning disabilities and steps that can be taken to increase accessibility are discussed.
