How useful is letting out steam (e. g. punching a pillow) to get rid of anger: study: bushman (2002) 603 participants invited to write an essay on abortion. All got back horrible grades (-10 to 10), they got around -8. Distraction: punching a punching bag for 2 minutes. Control: sit and wait for 2 minutes. Asked question about mood and anger of the moment, the willingness to blast white nose to the person that graded their essay. How loud to blast the music and the eagerness to punish (push the button) Self report: rumination (highest amount of anger, control (experienced least amount of anger) Eagerness to push button: rumination ( highest amount of anger) Study shows: catharsis is not an efficient way to decrease aggression.
