In 2012, Aggression Replacement Training (ART) received a final program rating of Effective, based on a review of the studies by Coleman, Pfeiffer, and Oakland (1992); Barnoski (2004); and Gundersen and Svartdal (2006). In 2020, when CrimeSolutions conducted a re-review of the ART program, the new evidence base included studies by Barnoski (2004) and Knoth and colleagues (2019). This re-review resulted in a new final program rating of No Effects. In addition, because the studies by Barnoski (2004) and Knoth and colleagues (2019) specifically focused on the version of ART implemented in the State of Washington, the program name has now been changed from Aggression Replacement Training (ART) to Washington State Aggression Replacement Training (WSART).
