Anger management includes a range of skills that can help identify and control anger symptoms. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of group cognitive-behavioral therapy of anger management on reducing physical aggression and increasing the level of self-esteem of students with high anger levels. For this purpose, during a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test and control group, 225 middle school students were selected from schools in Tehran and randomly divided into two experimental groups (48 boys and 64 girls) and control group (58 boys and 54 girls). ) Were located. Students in the experimental group received 10 weeks of cognitive-behavioral anger control therapy and students in the control group received no treatment during this period. Students in both groups were assessed for anger, aggression and self-esteem before and after the program. The results of analysis of covariance showed a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in physical aggression and self-esteem. The findings support the positive effects of anger management cognitive-behavioral therapy in this age group.
