Product Overview

Evidence has established a link between emotions and health but this link is not yet understood. The Deadly Emotions reviews this complex topic through the integration and interpretation of current research. Ernest Johnson suggests a potentially deadly role for anger, hostility, and aggression (AHA syndrome) in several health problems including heart disease, cancer, ulcers, and hypertension. He also explores the relationship between AHA syndrome and psychological problems such as depression, chronic stress, smoking, drinking, and child/spouse abuse. This up-to-date reference also examines recent literature on gender and ethnic differences in the expression of anger, and reviews psychological treatment approaches. Each of the volume's seven chapters represent an integration of research and clinical findings from a wide range of professionals. The author acts as organizer and interpreter of this array of research on the AHA syndrome's relationship with various diseases and psychological problems. The Deadly Emotions will be informative reading for professionals and students of psychology, psychiatry, medical psychology, psychosomatic medicine, and epidemiology.
