Health Psychology

Here, we pursue the strategy of no longer assessing the anger expression style – as usual – as a personality trait independent of a situation, but as a situation-dependent behavior that varies in different areas of life (at home, in the workplace, in leisure time) and therefore should be assessed separately. The hypothesis, which underlies our work, says that not an overt or suppressed anger expression style is associated with psychosomatic problems, but rather an anger expression style that is inadequate in a specific situation is associated with stress.
