Abstract

Both Type A behaviour and the component of hostility can be reduced by a number of different psychological interventions and such reductions are associated with reduced cardiac morbidity in patients with coronary heart disease. Reductions in Type A behaviour are not associated with significant changes in other risk factors nor with unwanted side effects such as reduced professional effectiveness.
