Aggressive behavior and job loss

May 21, 2013

The ApA put out a brief about a study published in Comprehensive Psychiatry which noted correlations between aggressive behavior and being fired from jobs.  The brief nicely noted that people who self-describe as frequently engaging in aggressive behaviors (disruptive behaviors) are fired more often than their non-aggressive peers.  However I didn’t like that the next paragraph mentioned intermittent explosive disorder, as this is a relatively rare disorder and in all my years of working with disruptive professionals (and workplace violence risk assessment), I have seen only a handful of cases of intermittent explosive disorder.
