Psychological neglect behaviour in children occurs when parents do not present supervision and fondness. In previous studies, it was dominantly found that individual victims of psychological neglect have negative self-esteem and have minimal gratitude values that could harm lives. This study aims to look at the role of gratitude toward to self-esteem in early adult individuals who are victims of psychological neglect in childhood. The data were collected using the Rosenberg self-esteem scale and the gratitude questionnaire six form. The study was carried on 170 subjects of psychological neglect in childhood victims, aged 21-40 years old using a non-experimental quantitative research design.
