The Control of Human Aggression: An Incompatible Response Strategy.
Baron, Robert A.
This is a brief report discussing ways of dealing with aggression in individuals. The author feels that previous approaches, such as catharsis or punishment, have proved inadequate, and that a more successful approach to reducing aggression involves the induction of incompatible reactions among aggressors. In the author's opinion, when angry individuals experience empathy toward their victim, feel entertained or amused by them or experience mild sexual arousal, these conditions serve to induce responses which are incompatible with aggressive feelings.
