Abstract
Psychoeducation Therapy is a life skill training providing psychological information services either individually or in groups to improve a client's ability in providing nutrition to infants aged 0-6 months. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of the group psychoeducation on mothers’ behavior in providing nutrition to infants aged 0- 6 months. The design of this study was a pre-experimental one group pretest-posttest design, with a simple random sampling technique. The sample comprised of 39 respondents of nursing mothers in the community empowerment agency (BPM) of Sri Astutik, S.ST, Warungering, Kedungpring, Lamongan. Data collection was carried out in January-March 2018 using a closed questionnaire, and analyzed using the Wilcoxon test. The results showed that prior to psychoeducation, mothers’ behavior in providing nutrition was not good (56.4%), while after psychoeducation almost all (84.6%) mothers’ behavior was good. The Z value = -4.000 with a significant level of 0.000 (p <0.05) indicated that there was an effect of psychoeducation on mothers’ behavior in providing nutrition to infants aged 0-6 months at BPM of Sri Astutik, S.ST, Warungering, Kedungpring, Lamongan. Thus, psychoeducation therapy can be performed to increase knowledge about providing appropriate nutrition to infants aged 0-6 months.
