PERCEIVED MALICE

from journal Cognitive Therapy and Research

The tendency to assume malice in the actions of others—intended of not--is called hostile attribution bias. Coupled with unwarranted anger it can jeopardize social relationships. Scientists at Walter Reed Army Institute for Research have developed a computer-based training program to reduce anger, reacting with aggression and hostile attribution bias. The goal is also to reduce post-traumatic stress disorder, depression and other behavioral concerns.

The study is published in the journal Cognitive Therapy and Research
