The SCARE Program is an anger and aggression management program designed to teach children and adolescents about emotions, to help them recognize alternatives to violent behavior, and to not respond aggressively when involved in provocative situations. The program was originally developed for young adolescents as previous research showed this was a critical developmental period to address violence and aggression.
The SCARE Program has not yet been thoroughly reviewed by PPN, but preliminary review suggests it may be effective at improving outcomes for the indicators listed above.
