This article provides an overview of Aggression Replace- mentTraining (ART), an empirically validated and theoretically grounded multimodal intervention designed to prevent and reduce aggression in adolescents. ART consists of three components: (1) skills streaming, designed to teach a broad range of social skills; (2) anger control training, a method for empowering youth to modify their own anger responsiveness; and (3) moral reasoning education, training to motivate youth to use skills acquired through the other two training components. Implementation issues are presented. Strategies to successfully transfer and maintain acquired skills, as well as enhance trainee motivation, are outlined. Efficacy studies suggest that ART is an effective program for aggressive adoles- centsinawiderange oftreatmentsettings.
