Abstract

Strong self-efficacy is needed to ensure patients with hypertension follow their long-term treatment and regulate their blood pressure. Logotherapy is one type of psychotherapy that can heal through discovering the meaning of life. This study was aimed to analyze the influence of logotherapy towards self-efficacy and blood pressure regulation in patients with hypertension. A quasi-experimental research method was used. The selected sample were 30 patients with hypertension, selected through purposive sampling, and divided into treatment and control group. The data were collected through a self-efficacy questionnaire and blood pressure measurement. Data were analyzed using the Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test and Mann Whitney Test with α = 0.05. The result showed differences in self-efficacy between pre- and post-test results in the treatment group (p = 0.001), but there were no differences in the control group. There were differences in systolic and diastolic blood pressure in the treatment group (p = 0.001; p = 0.001), but there were no differences in the control group. There were significant differences between treatment and control groups in self-efficacy (p = 0.038) and the regulation of systolic and diastolic blood pressure (p = 0.006; p = 0.032). Logotherapy can increase self-efficacy and improve blood pressure regulation in patients with hypertension. Nurses can use logotherapy as an alternative nursing intervention, both in clinical and community practice.
