It is vital to specify inclusion and exclusion criteria for potential clients so that both referrers and group facilitators are selecting those most appropriate for anger control training. Points to consider when defining the client group include the following: Those whose aggressive behaviour is unlikely to be amenable to change using ACT, such as those with head injury, organic illness or active mental illness, and those suffering from the effects of substance abuse. Potential to act violently in a group.

Clients who are highly impulsive tend to say or do things without thinking. ö Poor empathy. Clients with poor empathy find difficulty in understanding how others feel. They may be dispassionate, detached and not show concern for others. For these individuals, understanding the effect of their behaviour on others may help them to reflect on their behaviour towards others. Low tolerance of frustration. These clients are also likely to have high levels of tension, they are characterized by their inability to solve problems and their tendency to become easily irritated.

However, the theory does not explain the presence of non-violent cultures or the apparent association between violence in the culture and high levels of combative sport, that is to say, situations where, the greater the levels of combative sport, the greater are the levels of violence in the culture. There is also evidence to suggest that, for many individuals, apparent displacement of aggressive drives can actually increase levels of anger and aggression, possibly as a result of increased physiological arousal.
