E. e. emotion regulation efforts that occur following the experience of anger) in an effort to manage or escape from the heightened affect in some way. A fundamental premise of the AAM is that it is the use of these chronic and inflexible strategies to reduce, eliminate, or in some way control the experience of anger that is the most maladaptive aspect of clinical anger, and that is ultimately the cause of aggressive and/or violent behavior. So, what avoidant/escape behaviors are chronically, excessively, and inflexibly used that have such a toxic outcome?

2003; Hofmann, Heinrichs, & Moscovitch, 2004; Kashdan & Collins, 2010), and provide strong support for the notion that anger does not in fact reflect an exaggerated sense of mastery or control, but is instead reflective of an alternative affective, and with it behavioral, response that is often a result of an extreme sense of uncontrollability and vulnerability. In summary, we suggest that the early aversive life histories (described later in this chapter) that are typically found in angry individuals, in which withdrawal was not readily available, trigger intense feelings of uncontrollability, and in turn, the resultant vulnerability becomes a discriminative stimulus for the experience of anger.

As readers will see, the AAM incorporates recent advances in emotion science and experimental psychopathology to better understand the development of clinical anger, and in particular the relationship between the experience of anger and aggressive/violent behavior. 1. As briefly described above (and as will be highlighted in depth below), we find it exceptionally useful to utilize the basic tenets of the triple vulnerabilities model (Barlow, 2002), which we incorporate into the AAM in order to aid in the understanding of clinical anger.
