There are two kinds of anger: reflexive and cultivated. It is cultivated anger that produces interpersonal hatred.

Object Relations Theory provides a possible explanation of the origins of hatred. Hatred begins within the infant as a reaction to the "Bad Mother". In overcoming this reaction, the infant learns about his/her own nature and the nature of other people.

The lectures in each section will be followed by a short quiz to test your understanding and cement what you learn. These quizzes will not be graded and do not impact your ability to continue the course. However, taking time to check your understanding by taking the quizzes is important in this course because later sections will build upon the information you receive in earlier sections.

In adults, interpersonal hatred is in some part a choice. Although the wrongdoing is not a choice, once an adult realizes that they are cultivating anger toward another person, they must choose to discontinue cultivating that anger.
