Aggression Replacement Training (ART) is a cognitive behavioural-based programme that aims to teach aggressive adolescents (aged 12-18) pro-social behaviours. This is achieved through lessons that address skill acquisition, anger control and enhanced moral reasoning. Together these three components allow adolescents to develop pro-social values, learn concrete techniques promoting overt pro-social behaviour and how to inhibit antisocial behaviour. The programme lasts 30 hours in total and is administered to groups of 8-12 adolescents three times per week over 10 weeks. It is delivered by trained facilitators and can take place in a range of environments, from schools to delinquency centres.
