ABSTRACT

The purpose of this research is to develop Problem Solving Therapy(PST) program for maladjusted soldiers, especially for Green camp inmates and to prove its effectiveness. To develop the program, psychological traits and conditions of maladjusted soldiers were studied, and then application possibility of PST program as treatment methodology was investigated in order to compose the program with meaningful concepts. Exercises to increase self-esteem by problem solving, awareness of anger traits and anger management, communication skill, hope exercise for finding goals and strengths are all components of the program. To verify the effectiveness of the program, the program was operated 9 times in 3 weeks to 27 soldiers of Green Camp. The group was divided into two groups, experimental group and controlled group. Pre and Post tests to measure self-esteem, anger and problem solving ability was done to each group and T-tests using SPSS program was done with the collected data to compare and analyze the results. Post test results for experimental group’s average was the highest in every respect, but the results of the experiment are not statistically significant. Situations need to be considered since the sample size was small, mental state of test subject groups were uneasy and depressed and were not self motivated to attend the program. However after completing the program, soldiers of experimental group made positive changes in program effectiveness analysis in every aspect. Controlled group showed degenerating tendencies. By comparing these results, the research has significant meaning to raise issues on necessity of effective and realistic programs.
