This randomized controlled experimental study was carried out between 18 September and 27 October at Istanbul Bağcılar Necmettin Erbakan Science High School with a total of 60 students (30 experimental group / 30 control group). Research data were collected from the Conscious Awareness-Based Self-Efficacy Scale-Revised (BFÖS-Y), Risky Behaviors Scale (RDS) and Personal Information Form. Ethics committee approval, written institutional permission and written permission from the participants were obtained for the research. In the first week, pre-tests were given to the experimental and control groups, and the experimental group was given 30 minutes of mindfulness training. Mindfulness training continued to be given to the experimental group for the next 5 weeks, and post-tests were given to the experimental and control groups in the last week.

Mindfulness-Based Self-Efficacy Scale scores range from 22 to 110. 22 is the lowest possible score and 110 is the highest possible score. The scale consists of 22 items and 6 dimensions. A low score indicates that their conscious-awareness-based self-efficacy is weak.
- Change in The Impact of The Functioning of Detention Education in Adolescents. [[Time Frame: up to 6 weeks]]
Risk Behavior Scale scores range from 36 to 180. 36 is the lowest possible score and 180 is the highest possible score. The scale consists of 36 items and 6 dimensions. Getting a high score from the scale indicates the intensity of risky behavior.
