The Level of Anger Scale (LAS)

The Level of Anger Scale (LAS) is a tool used to measure and assess the intensity of anger in individuals. Developed by psychologist Dr. Raymond DiGiuseppe, the LAS is an important tool in helping identify and treat anger issues. The LAS is a self-report questionnaire that consists of 15 items, each of which is rated on a five-point scale from "not at all" to "extremely." The items measure the intensity of different aspects of anger, such as irritability, frustration, and hostility. The total score is then calculated and used to determine the overall level of anger in the individual. The LAS has been found to be a reliable and valid measure of anger. It has been used in numerous studies to assess the intensity of anger in individuals and to evaluate the effectiveness of anger management interventions. The LAS is a useful tool for clinicians, researchers, and individuals to assess and monitor anger levels. It can provide insight into the intensity of anger in an individual and help to identify potential anger management issues. It can also be used to evaluate the effectiveness of anger management interventions. The LAS is a valuable tool for understanding and managing anger.
