The Anger-Aggression-Violence Assessment (AAVA) is a 135-item self-report test that takes on average 25 minutes to complete. It has been standardized on male and female outpatients.

3. Aggression Scale         6. Drug Scale
                                           7. Stress Management

The Anger-Aggression-Violence Assessment (AAVA) focuses entirely on Anger-Aggression and Violence, which are conceptualized on an emotionally reactive continuum.

Continuum theory that as anger increases, it can evolve into aggression, which in turn can intensify and evolve into violence.
