It has been suggested that cultural norms and display rules dictate culturally sanctioned forms of emotional expression in general and anger in particular. Therefore, a culture-sensitive approach to effective anger regulation must consider the complexity of the individual's sociocultural background when one is conducting an assessment of and developing treatment for anger problems . The chapter suggests that an effective culture-sensitive approach to anger regulation adopts an integrative approach that incorporates an array of therapeutic strategies and is tailored to the specific cultural background and needs of the client. Examples of multimodal approaches with cultural diversity are introduced. The chapter also underscores the limitations of the research in the area of practice and highlights the need for research to identify efficacious, evidence-based therapies for anger specifically tailored to diverse populations. A case vignette illustrates a culture-sensitive framework for regulating anger by integrating various assessment and treatment strategies.
