Aggression Replacement Training (ART)

178426907Aggression Replacement Training® is a cognitive behavioral intervention program to help youth improve social skill competence and moral reasoning, better manage anger, and reduce aggressive behavior. The program specifically targets chronically aggressive children and adolescents ages 12-17.

 Family Services has implemented ART in various Crawford County schools. The program consists of 30 sessions of group intervention training, and is divided into three components—social skills training, anger-control training, and training in moral reasoning. Youth attend a one-hour group session in each of these components each week. Incremental learning, reinforcement techniques, and guided group discussions enhance skill acquisition and reinforce the lessons in the curriculum.
