Eleven groups of students performed a 24-session intervention based on Aggression Replacement Training (ART) (Goldstein, 1998) as part of their further education program. Subjects were 65 children and youths with varying degrees of behavioral problems. 47 subjects received the ART program, 18 received standard social and educational services and served as comparison subjects. Social problems and skills were assessed before and after the ART intervention using multi-informant instruments (SSRS, CADBI, HIT, CDCL). Informants in the ART group indicated significant improvement following the intervention, both in terms of increased social skills and reduced behavioral problems; in contrast, informants in the comparison group did generally not indicate improvement.
