This study aimed at verifying the effectiveness of a training program in anger management to reduce aggressive behavior and increase the social skills of students in high school teenagers. The study sample consisted of 50 male students from public schools in Madaba. They were randomly assigned to two groups: experimental group to which the training program was applied, and control group which did not apply the training program. To collect the data, the two researchers formed a 35-scale of aggressive behavior and a 35-scale of social skills. The validity and consistency of the two parameters were verified. The researchers also designed an anger management strategy program that included twenty-four training sessions based on cognitive behavioral therapy. The results showed significant differences between the performance of experimental and control groups on the aggressive behavior scale and all its sub-dimensions attributed to the training program. The results showed significant differences between the performance of the experimental and control groups on the social skills scale due to the training program as well. The researchers recommended that the program's skills should be included in the Ministry of Education's curricula to improve communication and self-communication among individuals and society.
