Product Details

The Anger Regulation and Expression Scale (ARES) is a comprehensive, self-report assessment of the expression and regulation of anger in youth. Derived from the Anger Disorder Scales (ADS), the ARES has been designed specifically for children and adolescents aged 10 to 17 years, and can be used in educational, clinical, and correctional settings.

The ARES was designed to be clinically relevant in identifying specific patterns of feelings, behaviour, and thinking that can be addressed in intervention programs. Results from the ARES provide both a general overview and an in-depth insight into the psychological and behavioural aspects of anger, all of which may be used to highlight important problem areas and inform appropriate interventions.

The ARES assesses tendencies towards inward and outward expressions of anger along with the range and duration of anger experiences. It includes a full-length version and a short version (ARES[S]). The full-length ARES version provides a comprehensive anger profile, and consists of 75 items which yield 25 scores that assess aspects of anger that contribute to poor functioning and maladjustment. The ARES[S], consisting of 17 items, provides information across three major domains of anger and is an effective screening tool for identifying youth with problematic anger reactions.
