Abstract

Objectives: The aim of the present study was to determine the efficacy of an anger management training on adjustment skills in a sample of high school male students with significant anger management problems, and proneness to aggression and violence due to drastic expression of anger. Method: The State-Trait Anger Inventory was administered to 170 grade 2 and 3 high school students as a screening tool. Subjects who scored at the 75th percentile or higher in this test were considered as the target population, from whom 32 individuals were randomly selected and divided into two groups. The anger management training program was administered to 16 members of the group as a screening instrument. Students’ Adjustment Questionnaire was used to measure adjustment skills. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis. Results: The observed F proportion was statistically significant (p<0.01). After the control or modification of the pretest’s contribution, the mean scores of the two groups were different in post-tests. This study showed that 58% of changes in maladjustment scores in individuals in post-test are explained through anger management training program and the maladjustment scores of individuals in pretest, with a 27% specific share of experiment variable. Conclusion: Anger management training program can improve adjustment skills of subjects and decrease the degree of maladjustment.
