How do you “make” a violent individual, and what are the implications for both prevention and treatment, using a life-span perspective? This workshop will demonstrate how to use evidence-based interventions with angry and aggressive children, adolescents and adults. A major focus will be on ways to bolster generalization and maintenance of treatment effects.
