There is growing evidence for the efficacy of programs to reduce inappropriate aggression in people with intellectual disabilities. These have been provided in groups and for individuals in forensic settings. People with intellectual disability and inappropriately expressed anger who were referred to a community psychology service were assigned to either individual intervention or a waiting list control. Participants were assessed both before and after treatment using an anger provocation inventory. Improvements were found in the scores obtained on the Anger Inventory for those receiving individual treatment when compared with the control group using a 2-by-2 split plot Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). These results suggest that individual cognitive behavioral intervention may be an effective treatment option in community settings. (Contains 2 tables.)
