Based on the importance of young inmates' self-concept for the success of the reintegration process, this study aims to explore self-concept with other approaches. A qualitative descriptive method was employed using the four-stage Appreciative Inquiry approach. 9 young prisoners participated in 2 focus groups. Thematic analysis was employed to identify empirical codes and examine relationships within and across the data. The findings in this study are themes that appear in four stage. The "Discovery" stage is the most difficult stage of the other four stages. Getting participants to believe in researchers is not easy. The Appreciative Inquiry process can not be applied in a formal format to young prisoners. They like something that relaxes, flows, and does not make them feel intimidated. Different educational and social backgrounds among them are a bit of a constraint in the implementation of this process. The differences are what caused the gap among the participants.
