Abstract

HIV is still being a public concern because the healing has not yet been found. Besides, the HIV has an impact on physical and psychological conditions as well as social issues. The family as a support system plays an important role to support HIV patients in social life. This study is aimed at improving the social functioning of HIV patients through family counseling and psycho-education. This study is a pre-experimental study with the design of One Group Pre-Test and Post-Test. The instrument was the Family Support Scale based on the family support aspect proposed by House Kahn (1985), in which it measured the level of family support tested on family members. Moreover, researchers employed the Social Functioning Scale of Max Birchwood's in order to measure the social functioning tested for the HIV patients. The research participants were a family whose members suffered from HIV. The result has shown that there is a growth in the score of post-test of family support and social functioning after giving the treatment. In short, the family counseling and psycho-education can improve the social functioning for HIV patients.
