Purpose: To conduct a systematic review study of school based interventions to decrease aggressive behaviour among adolescents. The main goal of this review is to know about various interventions and to evaluate the effect of interventions on aggressive behaviour. The study's second goal is to find research gaps that could lead to more research in this area. The findings could be used as a foundation for developing interventional programs aimed at reducing adolescents’ aggression. Design/Methodology/Approach: The purpose of this study is to develop a module as coping techniques to reduce the aggressive behaviour and analyse the ABCD model of the same. For this purpose we conducted a search 122 articles for relevant articles in the specified area. We looked for articles published between 2000 and 2022 using the primary databases; Google Scholar, Research Gate, Academia, SSRN, Shodhganga, PubMed, Rayyan and Elsevier. The words like aggressive behaviour, interventions and aggression were used for searching articles. All abstracts and entire articles were scrutinized to see various interventions as a coping strategy to decrease aggressions among students. Findings/Result: These findings reveal a clear link between self-control abilities and aggressive behaviour: those with greater self-control have less aggression, while people with lower self-control have more aggression. This relationship shows to hold true across a range of ages i.e. from childhood onwards. Based on these review study it also discussed and put forward future research into various interventions and strategies for regulating aggressiveness. Originality/Value: This review summarizes selected studies identifying the effect of various interventions on aggressive behaviour and find out the coping strategies. The future direction of existing research on emotional stability, first focusing on stressors and barriers associated with aggressive behavior, and considering the increased risk of stress, anxiety, and depression reported in this population. Next, it then describes recent trends and issues and seeks to fill gaps in existing literature that require additional research effort. We also conclude that there exists a need for future research on psychological intervention and coping strategies, cognitive behavioral therapy, parent management training, anger rumination and relaxation therapy for enhancing emotional well being and self-control of adolescents. Implementing parental interventions in parallel with the child’s interventions may raise mental health.
