Prevention groups for angry and aggressive children

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This case study presents positive results of a counseling prevention group for elementary school children who show a tendency to respond aggressively in peer interaction. Although primary prevention more commonly refers to large-scale interventions, small groups should also be viewed as effective prevention modalities. Empirical evidence of positive change in the counseling group described here suggests that small groups can be used effectively with young children to achieve prevention goals related to reducing aggressive behaviors and to enhancing positive social interactions.
