Objectives : The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of a cognitive-behavioral group therapy on self-esteem, depression, and self-efficacy for runaway adolescents in a shelter in Seoul, Korea. Design : A control group pre-post test design Population : runaway adolescents in a shelter in Korea Sample : The participants included 27 adolescents who resided in a shelter in Seoul, Korea.Experimental group consisted of 14 participants and control group consisted of 13 participants. Variables : Dependent variables were Self-esteem, Depression, and Self-efficacy. Self-esteem was measured by Self-esteem Inventory. Depression was measured by Beck Depression Inventory. Self-efficacy was measured by Self-efficacy Scale. All instruments were translated into Korean. Methods : Participants were randomly assigned to the experimental group or control group. Experimental group (n=14) participated in a C-B group therapy that consisted of seven sessions over a 7-week period. Control group (n=13) did not participated in a C-B group therapy. Dependent variables were measured before and after the application of the intervention. Data were collected over 5 months period on 27 participants. Findings : The findings revealed that in the experimental group, the scores of depression significantly decreased(z=-2.325, p=.02) and the scores of self-efficacy significantly increased(z=-2.098, p=.03) after the intervention. In the control group, the scores of depression, self-esteem, and self-efficacy showed no significant changes after the intervention. Conclusion : The cognitive-behavioral group therapy was effective in decreasing depression and increasing self-efficacy for runaway adolescents in a shelter. Implication : The cognitive-behavioral group therapy developed in this study is consisted of structured and specific contents. This program can be useful in applying for the other runaway adolescents in a shelter.
