Abstract: The secondary vocational education system has been implemented in China for a short time, and since the reform and opening up, along with the needs of social development, secondary vocational education has produced front-line workers for various industries in this process. Throughout the past three decades, secondary vocational education has been developing towards quality, specialization, and modernization. However, the role expectations and positioning of students in secondary vocational education have been fundamentally reversed, and the whole society is full of the theory that studying is everything and secondary vocational students are just “defective” who are eliminated by secondary school examinations. At the early stage of reform and opening up, secondary vocational education had a new development. However, around 2000, people’s perceptions changed and secondary vocational education became a non-optional choice. The students of secondary vocational education are facing a dilemma that they are at the end of the academic chain and facing the stigmatization from the society, school, and family, which makes the psychological problems of adolescents at the age of rebellion and psychological weaning period more prominent. This paper explores the psychological difficulties of secondary school students and the solutions from the perspective of psychological security and psychological satisfaction.
