The research question for the study is “What else did you do when you had problems or concerns during the course?” Each of the participant’s remarks should be put into one of the categories listed above. Do not omit any remarks and do not put any remark in more than one category. Tally the results and answer the question below.

How do you interpret the results of this study? How do the troubled youth in this study respond to problems or concerns?

Based on the content analysis results, 40% (n=14) of the respondents are active/positive in handling their problems or concerns, 31.4% (n=11) are passive/negative, 28.5% (n=10) are passive/positive, and none are active/negative. The troubled youth in this study are generally passive with almost 60% preferring to do nothing, such as distracting themselves with entertainment and forgetting their problems instead of facing them and trying to find solutions as individuals and/or group/family members. The rest of the respondents are active/positive in resolving their problems because they rely on reflection and group support in understanding and solving their issues. They seriously thought about their problems and engaged others when they felt it was needed to help them get through with their issues. They did ignore their problems and pretend they did not exist, such as what 60% did. Instead, they reflected on their problems, sometimes through writing, and most of the time through sharing their problems with others and seeking their advice.

The implications of the findings are that the youth do not have good problem-solving and conflict management skills and that the adults around them and their social institutions are not effective in helping them develop these skills. The youth are used more to entertaining themselves as if it is an effective way of resolving problems. It is good that they are not active/negative in handling their problems, but they lack good problem-solving and conflict management skills in analyzing and resolving their problems and conflicts. Furthermore, the findings suggest that adults or parents/caregivers and teachers, and basically, social institutions, are not nurturing these important life management skills among the youth. They may even be the ones teaching passive approaches. Hence, these respondents need workshops and social guidance in improving their problem-solving and conflict management skills.
