Emerging adulthood is often linked with the development task to explore an intimate relationship with people around them, including establishing romantic relationships. However, individuals sometimes are hesitant to start a romantic relationship because of various reasons, and one of them is low self-esteem. Therefore, this study aims to develop an online group therapy with a cognitive-behavioral approach for emerging adult women with low self-esteem. Participants of this research are 14 women ranging from 20-25 years old who have difficulties in starting a romantic relationship caused by low self-esteem. This study used Rosenberg’s Self-esteem Scale to measure the level of self-esteem in the participants. The results showed a significant difference between mean scores before and after the online group therapy (p= 0.009; Cohen’s d = 1.43), which means that online group therapy with CBT approach can improve the emerging adult women’s self-esteem who have difficulties starting a romantic relationship.
