Anger features prominently in posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), particularly in military and veteran populations. It plays an important role in PTSD development, maintenance, and response to treatment. Anger may also play an important role in the activation of aggressive behavior associated with the condition. In a reciprocal fashion, PTSD plays an important role in the manifestation and expression of anger. Understanding the nature of anger in military personnel and veterans with PTSD and developing and disseminating effective treatments are critical to easing the burden associated with this problem. This chapter outlines current conceptual models for understanding the relationship between anger and PTSD in military populations and recommended adaptations to evidence-based anger interventions, in order to tailor such strategies to the needs of this population.
