Abstract

Nomophobia is a fear experienced by someone when away from smartphones. If someone is confronted in a place that does not have an internet network or the battery runs out, then the tendency of behavior that is displayed can reduce one’s concentration level. Therefore, a systematic desensitization strategy can be used to minimize anxiety from certain behaviors, using alternative responses that are opposite from the behavior that is about to be changed. The trick is to repeatedly remember and imagine events that arouse anxiety and suppress anxiety with relaxation. The purpose of this study is that students can minimize their anxiety when away from smartphones with research subjects, namely five students who have very high nomophobia scores. This type of research is an experiment, with the type of one group pretest-posttest design. While the method of collecting data in this study uses the Nomophobia scale and found 5 research subjects. The results of the analysis using the Paired Samples T-Test Test found the Asymp.Sig (2-tailed) value is 0,000. Then, it can be seen the value of 0.43> 0.05 or 0.43 is greater than 0.05 which means that Ho is rejected and Ha is accepted, meaning that the implementation of a systematic desensitization strategy is effective in reducing nomophobia in SMKN 1 Driyorejo.
