Aggression Replacement Training (ART) was developed by the late Arnold Goldstein of Syracuse University to teach positive alternatives to children and youth with emotional and behavioral problems (Glick & Gibbs, 2011; Goldstein, Glick, & Gibbs, 1998). ART provides cognitive, affective, and behavioral interventions to build competence in social skills, anger control, and moral reasoning. With a focus on building strengths and restoring dignity, young people learn to take responsibility for their behavior, manage emotions, and build respectful interpersonal relationships. This article describes how strength-building ART strategies can enhance other therapeutic models which are specifically designed to serve traumatized children and youth.
