Those who suffer from PAPD are sorely in need not only of diagnostic recognition, but also of specific therapeutic intervention.

Presents powerful, eye-opening, and practical information for therapists, passive-aggressive individuals themselves, friends and family of passive-aggressive individuals, and on-the-job colleagues of those who treat others in a passive-aggressive manner." Documents how the answers to three basic questions about passive-aggression are the keys to proper diagnosis, understanding causality, and providing improved therapeutic responses." Covers a variety of treatment options and strategies--including cognitive, interpersonal, and psychoanalytic approaches as well as common transference and countertransference issues--that will aid victims of passive-aggressiveness and help passive-aggressive individuals themselves to do better."
