Aggression Replacement Training (ART) is cognitive behavioral intervention focused on adolescents, training them to cope with their aggressive and violent behaviors. It is a multimodal program that has three components; Social skills, Anger Control Training and Moral Reasoning. ART was developed in the US in 1981 and is now used in human services systems including, but not limited to juvenile justice systems, human services schools and adult corrections throughout North America as well as Europe, South America, and Australia. ART is not yet regarded as a model program but is described in most research surveys as a promising program.
