Having diffusion identity can have undesirable consequences both for the individual and society. To reduce or even avoid these undesirable consequences, steps can be taken as to interfere in the process of identity formation and even after its formation. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of logo therapy on improving an individual's identity. The study sample consisted of students who suffered diffusion identity. For identification and sampling some 500 male students from the University of Tehran were randomly selected, using the identity test and Bennion Adams (1987) test. The subjects were undergraduate students studying in the academic year 2010-2011 with the mean age of 21 years of old. Some 12 people with diffusion of identity problem and willing to participate in the program were selected to participate in therapy sessions. Out of the number, 3 people did not participate in group therapy sessions nor completed sensational trials. Therefore, just nine patients participated in full sessions. The program consisted of 12 group therapy sessions and the 90-minute logo therapy tests were conducted on the group. In the experimental and control groups, no significant differences in terms of identity diffusion were observed, but after logo therapy, the results of the test groups were significantly different from the other. In the experimental group, pre-test and post-test results were significantly different from one another, but in the control group, there was no significant difference between pre-test and post-test. Logo therapy's group was able to identify people who are upset on the identification of individuals for help.
