The study investigated the efficacy of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Logotherapy in reducing risky sexual behaviours among in-school adolescents in Benin Metropolis, Edo State. Four research questions were raised and formulated to hypotheses to guide the study. A Quasi-experimental design, using pre-test-post-test, and non-equivalent control group was adopted. The population of the study consisted of twenty thousand, four hundred and twenty SS 2 students. The sample consisted of one hundred and thirty five participants, which was selected through multi-stage sampling technique. Three schools were randomly selected from thirty one mixed public Senior Secondary Schools. One school was selected from each Local Government Area that made up the Metropolis. School A served as the experimental group for Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, comprising fifty five participants. School B served as the experimental group for Logotherapy, comprising thirty six participants. School C served as the control group, comprising forty four participants. The Adolescent Sexual Behaviour Inventory was used for both the pre-test and post-test. The reliability coefficient of 0.926 was obtained on the instruments. The data collected were analysed, using t-test, ANOVA and did a post-hoc analysis, using the Least Significant Difference. The findings showed that Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Logotherapy were both slightly efficacious in reducing risky sexual behaviours among in-school adolescents in Benin Metropolis. The study recommended that counselling psychologists and school counsellors should be well trained in the use of CBT and LT in addressing risky behaviours, especially among adolescents.
