Reserved for RTC Parent Group

If you are dealing with your child who is angry, defiant, aggressive we welcome you to attend the Aggression Replacement Training (ART). Trainings are held the first Tuesday of the month except on holidays when class is delayed one week. This group would assist the parent and caregivers in learning and adapting additional tools and gaining additional support to assist them in learning and applying the same tools their children are learning (coping skills and strategies) to manage and deal with issues regarding anger management, more acceptable and therapeutic communication and verbal skills and pro-actively identifying triggers and antecedents to aggressive behaviors and symptoms.

For reservations call: Martha Martinez, parent support liaison at (626) 798-6793 ext. 2346, or e-mail: mmartinez@5acres.org
