Aggression Replacement Training
Aggression Replacement Training is designed to teach adolescents to understand and replace aggression and antisocial behavior. The program's three-part approach includes training in Skill-streaming, Anger Control, and moral Reasoning. Skill-streaming uses modeling, role-playing, performance feedback, and transfer training to teach prosocial skills. In anger-control training, participating youths must bring to each session one or more descriptions of recent anger-arousing experiences (hassles), and over the duration of the program they are trained in how to respond to their hassles. Training in moral reasoning is designed to enhance youths’ sense of fairness and justice regarding the needs and rights of others and to train youths to imagine the perspectives of others when they confront various moral problem situations.
