Abstract

The study examines Utilizing Self-Management and Self-Instruction Techniques in Reducing Aggressive Behaviours among Secondary School Students. Based on the purpose of the study two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted quasi experimental pretest-posttest research design. The population of the study comprised 658 secondary school students. A sample size of 117 secondary school students was used for the study. Buss-Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ) was used to collect data for this study. The reliability co-efficient(r) of 0.83 obtained using Cronbach alpha method. Data collected were analyzed using mean, standard deviation for the research question while ANOCOVA were used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results showed that, self-management and self-instruction techniques were relative effective in the reduction of secondary student’s aggressive behaviours. Self-instruction proven to be more effective in the reduction of aggressive behaviour among secondary school students, although, there is no significant difference in the effectiveness of self-management and self-instruction techniques on secondary school students’ aggressive behaviour. It was recommended that the use of self-management and self-instruction techniques have been shown to be effective on secondary school students’ aggressive behaviour. It should be encouraged that practicing school Guidance and Counsellors should learn to use both techniques to assist students with aggressive behaviour.
