Background & aim: The present study was conducted according to educational needs based on social and welfare factors.

The statistical population of the study consisted of all male high school students in second grade in Doganbadan, Iran. The data was analyzed using SPSS software. Multivariate analysis of variance was used for data analysis.
Results: The results of the analysis showed that for both mental health and identity crisis variables for both experimental groups, the difference between pre-test and post-test was significant at the level of p<0.001. By comparing the pre-test and follow-up test only in the experimental group where both adolescents and parents were trained, the mental health variable was significant at the level of p <0.01 and in the group where only adolescents were subjected to independent intervention, the mental health variable was significant. It did not make sense (p>0.05). But by comparing the pretest and follow-up test of the identity crisis variable, no significant difference was observed in any of the groups (p> 0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it can be concluded that school counseling centers should create conditions for students with educational and personality problems and sometimes their parents to be counseled based on the choice theory to help students reduce their educational and personality problems as well as encourage them to act more actively and responsibly by informing students that whatever comes to them is the result of their own behaviors.
