The purpose of this thesis is to introduce the need for a program of prevention during pre-adolescent years addressing the root causes of maladaptive behaviors in American females during adolescence. This work will demonstrate the need for one to live outwardly in congruence with her inner self and will introduce a potential solution to this rising problem through a Christ-centered program. Issues arise in adolescent females who conduct their lives in a manner that is not in accordance with whom they were created to be. These problems will be addressed, and treatment programs designed to rehabilitate women who suffer from maladaptive behaviors will be assessed. Utilizing habits that increase core alignment may be found beneficial for prevention, in adjunct with grasping her role in the story God created for her.
