Dammit dolls are tools for coping with anger. Users grab them by the legs and slap them around to release aggression. The dolls also serve a humorous purpose, especially when used as gifts.
Some therapists criticize dammit dolls. They point out that the dolls do not manage the root causes of anger. They also express concern that the dolls may promote increased aggression. Other therapists look more positively at the dolls, believing they may be beneficial in decreasing aggression for some and increasing it for others. Therapists warn to be alert for feelings of wanting to actually hurt oneself or others.
