Aggression Questionnaire (AGQ) and Inventory School Motivation(ISM) were employed to gather data. Moreover, the experimental group received treatment for two months in 8 sessions (each lasting for 45 minutes) whereas the control group received no treatment. Having finished treatment, both groups took post-test. One-way blocked analysis of variance was utilized to analyze the data. Therefore, results showed that there existed a statistically significant relationship between the self-awareness training and aggression reduction (F= 134.202, P< 0.05).
