Aggression Replacement Training: A Viable Alternative
McGinnis, Ellen
Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v12 n3 p161-166 Fall 2003
Schools have widely used suspension and related punitive practices, in spite of their proven ineffectiveness. This article discusses the role of Aggression Replacement Training (ART) as part of a schoolwide positive behavior support initiative. Grounded in theory and research, ART focuses on the proactive teaching of acceptable behaviors to replace actions of aggression, uses strategies to teach anger control, and further enhances students' moral development.
