Abstract

The research on the effects of social skills training as an intervention has been viable in addressing aggression in adolescent male offenders. This study proposed that social skills training would decrease the aggression of the subject. The A-B single systems research design was used to examine the effectiveness of social skills training as a treatment on the aggression of an adolescent male. The results indicated a decrease in the severity level of aggression deficit, a positive increase in the subject's overall behavior. The results demonstrate promising evidence on the impact of social skills training programs and promotes the use of social skills training as a cognitive intervention method with adolescent male offenders, within a correctional, aftercare setting.
