dc.description.abstractPast research has clearly demonstrated that depressive symptoms are associated with anger arousal and anger suppression (e.g., Allan & Gilbert, 2002; Quiggle, Garber, Panak, & Dodge, 1992). However, the literature is mixed in terms of whether depressive symptoms are associated with aggressive, assertive behavioral responses (Bjork, Dougherty, & Moeller, 1997), or with submissive behavioral responses (Allan & Gilbert, 1997). The purposes of this proposed study would be to further confirm already-established relationships among depressive symptoms, anger arousal and anger suppression, as well as to investigate and clarify any relations between symptoms and behavioral responses to anger. It was hypothesized that findings pertaining to depressive symptoms, anger, and anger suppression would confirm past research, and that symptoms would be more highly correlated with submissive behavior than outward aggressive behavior. Participants in the study would include undergraduate students who, for the purposes of a larger study, completed scales measuring levels of depressive symptoms, anger arousal, and likely responses to anger.en
