Development of social skills in 3 schools in the Municipality of Høje-Taastrup, Denmark

Executive Summary

In this development project teachers and (youth)club workers from 3 schools and their after- school hours youth clubs, in the Municipality of Høje-Taastrup, were trained in Aggression Replacement Training / A.R.T. which is a well-known method/model to sustain the development of social skills in older children (8 – 11 years old). The aim of the development project has been to provide teachers and club workers (with various pedagogical training) at 3 schools placed in socially disadvantaged areas (in Denmark such are often referred to as ‘ghettos’) with shared tools and methods which could supplement their professional skills in order to enhance the interdisciplinary work with challenged and vulnerable children.
