The objective of this study is to find out the effect of positive thinking training in an effort to raise self-acceptence in students with disabilities. Students with disabilities who receive positive thinking training are expected to have a higher level of self-acceptence compared to students with disabilities who do not recieve the training. The subjects of this research are 13 students with disabilities from various faculties with a low to moderate level of self acceptance based on the result of a priorinterview. This research collects data using a scale of self-acceptance containing statements that indicate behaviors on the object variable that will be measured and given directly to the subjects. Data analysis in this research analyzes the comparisonof pre-test, post-test and follow-up results with the Wilcoxon test to compare pre-test, post-follow and pre-follow. The result of Friendman test analysis shows the coefficient of chi-square=14.711 with p=0.001 which shows a very significant difference in self acceptance between pre-test, post-test and follow-up. The result of wilcoxon test on pre-test shows Z=2.845 with p=0.004, post follow shows Z=1.187 with p=0.23, and pre-follow shows Z=3.062 with p=0.002, which shows that there is a different level of self-acceptance during pre-post, post-follow, and pre-follow. The resultof the study basedon Friedman test and Wilcoxon test analysis shows that there is a significant increasei self-acceptance afterthe training. This proves that positive thinking can increase the levelof selfacceptancein students with disabilities.
