Abstract: This study sought to identify the impact of three different group treatments (modeling, fantasy and modeling plus fantasy) on the acting-out behavior of fifth grade boys. Questions posed related specifically to the differences between pretest to post-test mean gain scores of the three treatment groups plus a control group. The study employed ^^8 fifth grade males from three Alachua County Schools. After initially screening all fifth grade males from the three schools on the Acting Out Scale, 48 were randomly selected and assigned to the four groups. All subjects were pre- and post-tested during two-week periods with a teacher rating scale, ratings of taped responses by subjects to anger producing situations, a peer perception device and frequency counts on times disciplined. The taped responses v;ere made by the counselor in each school and rated by trained judges for level of aggressiveness. The acting out scales and discipline reports were recorded by the subject's teacher, while the classroom play was administered by the school counselor. Each group was conducted by the school counselor and consisted of ten sessions. The modeling group listened and reacted to a tape of a boy handling a hierarchy of anger producing situations by using self-control. The fantasy group listened and reacted to a tape in which they were instructed to imagine themselves involved in the same situations that the model faced. The combined modeling plus fantasy group listened and reacted to both tapes. The control groups was given unstructured time to talk with each other, draw pictures or play games. Each hypothesis was stated in reference to each measure utilized in the study and each was tested as a null hypothesis. Each was rejected if the probability of the obtained result was less than the predetermined level of significance (.05). A multivariate nonparametr ic analysis of variance revealed no statistically significant difference between treatment conditions. The analysis also provided a test for effect of schools on the dependent variables. The analysis revealed a statistically significant difference between schools. Further two-way non-parametric analyses of variances for treatment differences between the modeling group and both the control group and combined group treatment on the Classroom Play. An overall trend toward decreasing acting-out behavior in the three treatment groups is apparent in the raw data. Generalizing effects of the experimental condition may be in evidence. The impli' cations of these results and their applications for counselors are discussed in limitations of the study and suggestions for further research were indicated.
