ABSTRACT

Juvenile delinquency is a serious social concern, characterized by disturbance in executive functions, cognitive emotion regulation, and aggression. The most common problem that delinquent children and juveniles deal with at every moment is the lack of sufficient control over their aggression.

In this study, 80 juvenile delinquents were selected through accidental sampling from the reformatory school of Gorakhpur (Uttar Pradesh). The intervention session was given to the entire subjects for a period of 60 days regularly. In order to collect data, the scale of aggression proposed by “Km.
