This was an empirical quantitative and confirmatory research. The purpose of this study was to show the effect of short-term solution-focused counseling on adolescents’ self efficacy, by comparing results of experiment group and comparison group. The research question was: how far can a short-term solution-focused counseling affect adolescent’s self-efficacy in issues they face daily at school; such as communication, learning difficulties, emotional problems and changing one’s lifestyle, and how long will the impact last? The researchers hypothesized that school seniors who were counseled would have a better self-efficacy which in turn will enhance their self-respect and their ability to deal with personal problems, develop their social skills and boost their self-confidence.
