  • Abstract
This study examined the after effects of the Delfos Program of the education in values across sport in the levels of aggressiveness in young school people. The sample was formed by students from two public schools (N=160), with an average age of 10.6 years (N= 79 experimental group y N= 81 control group). The Intervention Program was applied to the experimental group in twenty-four one-hour-long sessions. At the same time the control group took sessions of physical education that they had programmed. The results showed, in the experimental group, a significant improvement in assertive behaviours and a decrease of aggressive behaviours, both in sport and in other contexts. No significant changes were found in the control group.
