Abstract

Violent behavior is a behavior that uses physical force or power to threaten oneself, others, groups or communities and environments that can result in injury, death, psychological harm and environmental damage. Violent behavior is often recurrent even though the patient has had the ability to control his violent behavior. So, it is required a more optimal handling. One therapy used is Assertive Acceptance Commitment Therapy (AACT) which is integration between Assertive Therapy (AT) and Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT). This study aims to analyze the effect of AACT on the violent behavior of schizophrenic patients. The design of this study was quasi-experimental pretest-posttest with control group. The population of the study was patients with violent behavior problems in inpatient wards of Menur Mental Hospital Surabaya. Sample size of 32 respondents taken by simple random. The independent variables were AT, ACT and AACT. Dependent variable was violent behavior. Data were collected by filling in the observation sheet. Data processing was by using Manova statistical test. There were differences in violent behavior of patients after given intervention AT, ACT, AACT, and implementation strategy with p value = 0.04 (p <0.05). The AACT intervention group was better than AT (with mean diff = 0.75), ACT (with mean = 1.25) and implementation strategy (with mean diff = 0.000). AACT can reduce the patient's violent behavior by optimizing the personal and interpersonal system by mutually providing support through a commitment to maintain adaptive behavior.
