Thirty students were selected by available sampling and were randomly assigned to either the interventional or control groups. The participants completed the academic self-concept questionnaire in three time intervals: before, after, and follow up after two months, between the pre-test and post-test. Lifestyle change-based treatment sessions were performed according to Adler's theory, with an emphasis on the students' educational lifestyle for the intervention group in 7 sessions of 90 minutes, once a week. There was no intervention for the control group. Repeated measures ANOVA was used to analyze the data.

The self-concept (F=25.177) and its subscales including academic effort (F=15.493), and academic self-confidence (F=26.067) were improved in the post-test for the interventional group (p<.001); this improvement continued in follow-up.
