SDTP – Aggression Alternative Skills

Cognitive Program
  • Description

    The curriculum uses social skills instruction that prepares group members to engage in pro-social interactions based on self-understanding and consideration of the impact of their actions on others. Aggression Alternative Skills integrates additional social skills from the Thinking for a Change program to provide group members with an explicit step-by-step process for addressing stressful real life situations. The program focuses on how to effectively deal with feelings of anger along with further practice in applying cognitive self-change and aggression replacement skills to newly identified problem situations.
