These existential fantasy questions have been used with juveniles in a corrections center in the western United States. Usual group membership is limited to eight boys, aged thirteen to eighteen, awaiting assessment before assignment to a long-term residential facility. Members come and go; stays in our custody last from a few weeks to a few months. The boys that reside here have been committed by a magistrate to receive help with a variety of problems from stealing, lying, drug abuse, rebelling against authority, aggression, gang activity, destruction of property, sex offenses, etc. We have found that even antisocial youths are willing to express themselves in this thought-

provoking manner. Examining existential issues is often very interesting to them. Existential issues might go even further with older adults since they have had more time to reflect on the meaning of life and frustrations they have encountered in attempts to make their lives meaningful.
