Aggression replacement training (ART) is a cognitive behavioural intervention for reduction of aggressive and violent behaviour, originally focused on adolescents. It is a multimodal program that has three components; Social skills, Anger Control Training and Moral Reasoning.
Program Goals/Target Population
Aggression Replacement Training (ART) is a cognitive–behavioral program that teaches youth to control impulsiveness and anger; to acknowledge the limitations in their current thoughts, emotions, and behaviors; and to learn new skills and coping mechanisms to promote future prosocial behavior. The program is targeted at moderate- and high-risk youth who have a history of serious aggression and antisocial behavior, assessed through a clinical instrument to examine the degree of problematic behavior.
