The third edition of Aggression Replacement Training (ART) is a comprehensive intervention curriculum for aggressive youth. This book for practitioners provides both theory and application of theory for group facilitators to use and implement.
Aggression and violent behavior typically are given energy and sustenance by the emotional arousal stemming from anger rooted in cognitive misperceptions of the interpersonal world. Aggression is simultaneously a behavioral, cognitive, and emotional phenomenon. Interventions designed to address must be multidimensional. ART presents this approach.
The authors clarify the theory underlying the ART components and include user-friendly suggestions for successful implementation of the 30-session program. They also address critical implementation concerns, describe program applications at various sites and evaluations of ART’s effectiveness, and detail issues in program administration and management.
The third edition of Aggression Replacement Training offers step-by-step session plans for teaching ART’s three coordinated components:
Social Skills Training
Teaches participants what to do, helping them replace antisocial behaviors with positive alternatives. Ten sessions involve the following procedures: Modeling, Role-playing, Performance feedback, and Transfer training.
Anger Control Training
Teaches participants what not to do, helping them respond to anger in a nonaggressive manner and rethink anger-provoking situations. Ten sessions involve the following procedures: Identifying triggers, Identifying cues, Using anger reducers, Using reminders, Thinking ahead, and Using self-evaluation.
Helps raise participants’ level of fairness, justice, and concern for the needs and rights of others. Ten sessions involve the following phases: Introducing the problem situation; Cultivating moral maturity; Remediating moral development delay; Consolidating moral maturity.
Originally developed by Dr. Arnold P. Goldstein and Dr. Barry Glick, Aggression Replacement Training (ART) was revised and updated to reflect over 30 years of use in schools, community agencies, juvenile institutions, and other settings.
Appendixes include the complete Skillstreaming curriculum for adolescents, session evaluation checklists, additional moral reasoning problem situations, and other materials helpful in running the program.
