The ADS assesses anger as an independent problem, rather than a secondary symptom of another issue. It uses an Anger-In/Anger-Out model, which examines physical aggression resulting from anger, as well as the cognition that may be a part of affective aggression. ADS results provide a strong basis for appropriate intervention and treatment plans.
