Aggression Replacement Training (A.R.T.) is a proven intervention tool that can be used by recreation programs or treatment settings that have volatile participants. People reacting to different stresses have resulted in people acting aggressive towards others, either verbally or physically. Individuals participating in this program learn the importance of slowing down a situation and then applying the correct social skill to deal with the situation. Participants in this training will return to the workplace and present the application of A.R.T. as a tool to decrease aggression in the recreation program or train the individual who is getting ready to return to the community.
