Abstract

The present study examined the preliminary effects of an 8-session group cognitive–behavioral treatment (CBT) designed to reduce driving-related anger, aggression, and risky driving behaviors in veterans. Participants (N = 9) with self-reported aggressive and risky driving problems completed self-report measures at pretreatment, posttreatment, and 1-month follow-up. Of those completing the treatment, 89% demonstrated reliable change in driving-related aggression and 67% evidenced reliable change in driving-related anger. Similar changes were found for secondary treatment targets.
