NEW—Direct translation into Spanish of the Third Edition of Aggression Replacement Training®.

Aggression Replacement Training® (ART) is a evidence-based, proven-effective approach for working with challenging youth. This revised and expanded edition is the culmination of over 30 years of use in schools, community agencies, juvenile institutions, and other settings.

The authors elaborate on the techniques and strategies for each of Aggression Replacement Training’s three components, clarifying the theory behind the interventions and offering user-friendly suggestions for successful implementation. They present program procedures in the form of sessions, including step-by-step instructions for conducting each group meeting.

Aggression Replacement Training features three coordinated and integrated components:

Social Skills Training

Teaches participants what to do, helping them replace antisocial behaviors with positive alternatives.

Anger Control

Teaches participants what not to do, helping them respond to anger in a nonaggressive manner and rethink anger-provoking situations.

Moral Reasoning

Helps raise participants’ level of fairness, justice, and concern for the needs and rights of others.
