Abstract

There are three main objectives of this study. First, to identify the cause of disturbance among adolescents whose parents were divorced. Second, to explore the changes on the subjects due to the group counseling/intervention process. Finally, to identify the effects of group counseling/intervention process on subjects' academic and career planning. This experimental study was conducted on 10 female form two students who were selected to participate in the group counseling by purposive random sampling. The qualitative data was collected on a single case. The case study was done on a subject who was selected from the counseling group. The data collected was analyzed using explanation-building. The results of the study indicated the following: first, group counseling was able to determine that the disturbance among the adolescents was due to their irrational belief system. Second, group counseling was proven to be effective in changing irrational thinking to a more constructive thinking among the subjects and in moving them towards a more positive emotion and behavior. Finally, group counseling was able to improve career and academic planning among the subjects.
