Greater Risk Of Drunken Violence In Those Who Suppress Anger

Freitag 25. Juni 2010 von htm

A study published in the journal Addiction reveals that drunkenness increases the risk for violent behaviour, but only for individuals with a strong inclination to suppress anger.
The two authors, Thor Norström and Hilde Pape, applied an approach that reduces the risk of drawing erroneous conclusions about cause and effect. They conclude that their study adds to the body of evidence suggesting that drinking may in fact inflict physical aggression. The authors elaborate this conclusion: „Only a tiny fraction of all drinking events involve violence and whether intoxicated aggression is likely to occur seems to depend on the drinkers‘ propensity to withhold angry feelings when sober.“ (Source: Medical News Today, 23.6.10
