crimes, mental illness' alcoholism, dmg abuse, poverty, alienated youth and other social
problems [Satir 1988]. This study was on girls of age between 15-18yr in Nakum Probation Girls
Hostel. The study attempted to investigate the role of dysfunctional communication in the girls'
home of origin and its impact on their behavior.
The study also looks into how communication is done in the Probation Hostel among the inmates
and with the administration. According to Satir , communication is like a big umbrella that
covers and affects all that goes on between human beings. It is the largest single factor
determining what kind of relationship one makes with others and what happens to each other in
the world. Commlmication can either be positive/effective or negative/noneffective/
