In essence, the tripartite model tells us several important things and poses additional questions to be answered.

For instance, negative affect and autonomic (somatic) arousal are highly and positively correlated with panic disorder, which in turn is negatively correlated with low levels of positive affect. Conversely, both social anxiety and depression are highly and positively correlated with high levels of negative affect, and negatively correlated with low levels of positive affect, yet are minimally correlated with autonomic arousal. Informed by the tripartite model for understanding emotional disorders, and given the myriad of empirical findings regarding the comorbidity The Anger Avoidance Model (AAM) 21 of anger with a variety of current diagnostic classifications, we suggest that clinical anger may therefore best be viewed as a specific variation of NAS.

When evaluating the efficacy of these cognitive behavioral interventions for clinical anger more specifically, it would seem logical to begin with reasonable benchmarks by which to compare efficacy findings within the broad area of anger-related problems.
