Discouraged adolescents are a population that is little understood. Many discouraged adolescents become homeless, join gangs, and ultimately end up in correctional facilities. This thesis explores how trained therapists can encourage lifestyle change through understanding adolescents‘ private logic. When utilizing basic problem solving skills, training the adolescent how to implement positive change in their world has transformational value that benefits all in our society.
