The STAXI-2 was developed to assess state anger, trait anger, and anger expression and to measure the way these components contribute to medical conditions. To investigate the effects of anger on mental and physical disorders, the experience of anger must be clearly distinguished from anger expression and anger control.
The unlimited-use STAXI-2:IR, by Peter R. Vagg, PhD and Charles D. Spielberger, PhD, provides interpretation of STAXI-2 scores based on hand-entry of item scores. The software examines an individual’s scale and subscale scores and generates a comprehensive interpretive report based on research findings.
STAXI-2 materials, including the manual, have been translated into European Spanish and designed especially for Spanish-speaking clinicians and their clients. Normative data were collected primarily in Spain, with additional data collected in some Latin American countries. Certain test items and stimuli in this translation vary from the English version because of cultural and linguistic differences between the countries and their language. Learn more or order.
A comprehensive list of research articles related to the STAXI is available via Mendeley, a free reference management tool. After accessing the link, you will be prompted to create an account. A white paper describing how to use this research repository can be found here. Use of this resource is encouraged to facilitate research using the STAXI. Both the list and the white paper are available in the Resources tab above.
