The objective of this study is to review the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral group therapy (CBGT) on girl students’ self-concept based on Heimberg's model. The method of this study was an experimental type. Using Tennessee’s self-concept questionnaire, 18 students (n = 9 for each group) were randomly selected into two groups: experimental group (cognitive behavioral group therapy) and control group (no treatment). After 12 session treatments (2 h per session), Tennessee’s self-concept questionnaire was repeated as a post-test in both groups. Covariance test showed that CBGT based on Heimberg’s model was more effective in experimental students' self-concept than in control group, with 99% confidence. Therefore, CBGT based on Heimberg’s model was associated with a marked positive response in young students’ self-concept.
Key words: Cognitive-behavioral group therapy, Heimberg's model, self-concept, young students.
