Abstract


This article discusses how intervention based on cognitive behaviour therapy affects aggression.

In this research, 13 to 17 year-old high school pupils were divided into two groups: the experimental group which participated in the training and the control group which did not. Research results have revealed that after the intervention based on cognitive-behavioural therapy the numbers of male and female physical and verbal aggression decreased. However, no such changes were observed in the control group. Moreover, after the intervention based on cognitive-behavioural therapy, the numbers of male and female hostility decreased in both groups. Female numbers of anger decreased after the intervention based on cognitive-behavioural therapy. However, the numbers of aggression in the control group and the numbers of male aggression in the experimental group have not changed.
