Aggression Replacement Training - ART
Aggression Replacement Training® is a cognitive behavioral intervention program to help children and adolescents improve social skill competence and moral reasoning, better manage anger, and reduce aggressive behavior. The program specifically targets chronically aggressive children and adolescents. Developed by Arnold P. Goldstein and Barry Glick, ART® has been implemented in schools and juvenile delinquency programs across the United States and throughout the world. The program consists of 10 weeks (30) sessions of intervention training and is divided into three components --- social skills training, anger control training, and training in moral reasoning.
The program was first developed for aggressive and violent adolescents aged 12 to 17 who were incarcerated in juvenile institutions. ART® has now been adapted for children and youth in schools and mental health centers to reduce aggressive and antisocial behavior and to promote anger management and social competence.
