       counseling/psychotherapy; therapy services; physical health services and medical

       ages 13 through 17, referred by Dane County Department of Human Services in
       eliminating aggressive behaviors exhibited within their homes and/or other settings. The
       program will teach participants problem solving, anger management, conflict resolution
       and other social skills to help them avoid and/or manage situations where they are likely
       to utilize aggressive alternatives. The program will also provide opportunities to
       challenge the underlying belief systems that support identified behaviors and help youth
       identify personal and environmental triggers for their aggressive actions including youth's
       exposure to traumatic events.

       3. Prevent youth from further involvement with the juvenile justice system

       Services within the adolescent anger management program must address these core
       objectives utilizing treatment interventions and modalities, which are evidence based,
