This research proposal evaluates adolescent participation in gang culture using principles of humanistic psychology. Specifically, the researcher explores whether humanistic psychology, with particular attention to the works of Carl Rogers and Virginia Satir, provides insight in dealing with adolescents participating in gangs. The paper examines whether adolescents can learn to give empathy using this theory and, if so, if this will help them embrace conflict-resolution techniques within their gang cultures.
