The purpose of this study was to examine the effectiveness of Anger Control Training on African-American males, who exhibit aggressive behaviors in an elementary school setting. It was hypothesed that the students participating in anger management group training would decrease aggressive behaviors. The single system AB research design was used to examine the effectiveness of Anger Control Training as an intervention on each child. The results of the study indicated that for each child a different change took place. For two (2) boys there was a decrease in aggression, two (2) other boys aggression levels increased and one (1) remained the same. The study was conducted over a fourteen (14) week period in which the baseline, intervention and a follow up phase took place.
