AbstractCognitive-behavioral model carries the notion that individuals actively use their own sets of value and beliefs to interpret their worlds, and such interpretations have direct bearings on their moods and behaviors. A 7-session group applying cognitive-behavioral procedures was designed to enhance the coping skills of aggressive children and reduce their maladaptive behaviors. Seven children aged 9-11 were recruited after assessment interviews. They exhibited low tolerance for frustration, poor self control and general lack of effective ways to express anger. Members were helped to promote the awareness of their emotions and sources of anger, and improve problem-solving strategies with reference to their conflict situations in school, family and social settings. Cognitive, emotive and behavioral techniques like short talks, structured exercises and role plays were used to facilitate change. A parallel group for the children’s parents was run to enhance their understanding on the children’s emotions as well as to facilitate the maintenance and generalization of new skills acquired by their children. Results from pre and post- training assessment showed that positive changes in the children’s mood as well as their awareness in anger situation were evident. Implications for similar treatment attempts in the future were discussed.
