There is a substantial literature that focuses upon the experience and expression of anger, and the effect that this might have upon an individual's general health. However, remarkably little is known about the relationship between anger and general health with young offenders. Using self-report measurements, the relationship between anger and general health is explored in a population of young offenders. The study showed that a series of significant relationships existed between young offenders' responses on measures of anger and their general health. The implication of these findings for both staff training and the development of anger management programmes is explored as well as methodological limitations.
