Peaceful Alternatives to Tough Situations (PATTS) is an evidence based, aggression management program designed to help students increase positive conflict resolution skills, develop the ability to forgive transgressions, and reduce aggressive behaviors.


Goals and Objectives:

  • Weekly sessions in the PATTS program will focus on teaching the following:
  • Youth cognitive skills
  • Peer refusal skills
  • Appropriate conflict resolution skills
  • Identification and verbalization of emotions or anger cues
  • Calming techniques and forgiveness


Parents will receive training informing them about the skills taught to students, encouraging them to support the use of the skills at home.
