Additional Information

Washington Aggression Interruption Training (WAIT)
Aggressive behavior by children and adolescents continues to be a serious and increasing problem in our schools, on the streets, and in our communities. Washington Aggression Interruption Training (WAIT) is a cognitive-behavioral intervention designed to assist youth with aggression, reduce anti-social behaviors and offer an alternative of prosocial skills.

Washington Aggression Interruption Training is an intensive and impactful intervention, designed to promote pro-social skills, improve anger control and reduce the frequency of acting out behaviors. In weekly sessions, participants gain tools that allow them to solve problems, make decisions, and interact positively in social situations.

The curriculum consists of three components:
Social Skills Training (The Behavior Component)
Anger Control Training (The Emotional Component)
Moral Reasoning (The Values Component)

Social Skills Training was originally developed by Dr. Arnold Goldstein and is the teaching in a series of interpersonal skills which addresses various social situations. The class is designed to use a "Tell, Show, Do, Feedback" method of skill instruction. Social Skills Training has been successful with aggressive, shy, withdrawn, immature, developmentally delayed youth, or youth who are lacking in their interpersonal skills.

Anger Control Training is a sequence of classes originally developed by Dr. Eva Feindler and focuses on teaching youth self-control in dealing with their anger. Techniques for reducing and managing feelings of anger in difficult situations are introduced and practiced. The goal is empowering the youth through positive anger control methods. This enables them to have a variety of options in dealing with a problem, rather than the single option of aggression.

Moral Reasoning is a structured discussion group developed by Dr. John C. Gibbs and is a method of developing acceptable social attitudes and values. The development of moral maturity is encouraged through discussion between the more mature moral reasoners and the less mature moral reasoners. The goal of the group is to facilitate the normal adolescent growth of moral-cognitive development, in order for the youth to see the need for fairness, justice, and concern with the needs and rights of others.
