The results of a short-term trial of combating aggression in 20 institutionalized children of both sexes in the age range of 10-14 years are presented in this paper. Vigorous physical exercise and learning vocal music were the two remedial therapies employed Results indicate that the experimental group significantly increased its Group Conformity Ratings after the treatment. As far as the direction of aggression is concerned, the experimental group significantly reduced its extra-punitive responses. On the reaction of frustration, the experimental group improved its ego-strength after the treatment. The results are indicative of a better level of adjustment by the experimental group as a result of the therapies.
