Abstract
The indiscriminate use that adolescents give to information and communication technologies has generated a social problem in Guatemala. Some pastors, leaders, and parents are struggling or failing to provide desperately needed pastoral care to teens due to the abuse of technology. This dissertation seeks to answer the question: “What kind of pastoral care is faithful and effective in ministry with victims of information and communication technology use in Guatemala?” using Richard Osmer's four tasks of practical theology. Based on the knowledge of psychology, sociology and theology, the current pastoral care of adolescent victims of the abuse of information technologies in Guatemala could be guided towards a more faithful and effective praxis. An effective praxis is defined through the proposal of a model of pastoral care by implementing the detection of needs, observation and spiritual accompaniment, transmitting a sensitive, courageous vision, empowering and strengthening the ministry of pastoral care with adolescents and young people.
