Then was selected at random to 25 of them, which were given a workshop autovalía derived from the rational-emotive therapy of Albert Ellis, for two weeks. Endign the workshop, the resiliente behaviour and violent attitudes of workshop participante were assess. The resulte were analyzed with statisticians not Parameter "Tau_b" Kendall, "Rho" Spearman and "Ranges sign with" Wilconxon, with the help of SPSS 16.
