Abstract: 
Aim: The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of anger management training on aggression and social adjustment of 15-12 year old boys in the academic year 2008–9.
Method: This semi experimental study was conducted on 34 students who scored high on an aggression questionnaire (Eysenck, 1975) and whose anger was confirmed by their school counselor and superintendent. The sample was selected through available sampling assignment and participants were randomly divided into two experimental and control groups. The Eysenck Aggression Questionnaire and the California Personality Test were administered at pre test to all participants. The experimental group was trained in anger management via eight group sessions of 1/2 hour duration each. During this period no intervention was given to the control group. Both questionnaires were administered again at post test. Data obtained from pretest and post test was analyzed using t-test for independent groups.
Results: Statistical analyzed showed that compared to the control group, anger in the experimental group significantly decreased whereas social adjustment significantly increased in the experimental group as compared to the control group.
Conclusion: Findings of this study revealed that anger management training can significantly and effectively reduce female anger and increase social adjustment.
