This study examines the relationship of anger to child psychopathology in an inpatient psychiatric sample. Results suggest that anger as assessed by the Children's Inventory of Anger is not highly correlated with other affective experiences or behavioral dispositions, yet may provide incremental data pertinent to distinguishing children with concurrent disturbances of emotion and conduct from children with disturbances in either emotion or conduct.
