Abstract

Cassiello-Robbins and Barlow illustrate in the target article the importance of anger as a transdiagnostic factor in emotional disorders. We agree and extend the logic of their argument to psychopathology more broadly by fitting mental health problems into a more general individual differences framework. We illustrate how this helps solve the problems of comorbidity and heterogeneity in contemporary diagnosis.
