The present study investigated the effects of a stress management program by the cognitive therapy for human service provider. The program consisted of the lecture and exercise which divided the cognitive therapy into six steps, and was carried out for 3 hours. After the program, statistically significant differences were found between pre and post program on the scores of STAI-S score, “understanding of the cognitive model” score, “self-efficacy in the awareness of their own feelings” score, “self-efficacy in the awareness of their negative thought ” score, “self-efficacy of looking back upon a thought, when it falls into an unpleasant feeling” score, and “self-efficacy over creation of positive thought” score. These suggest that this program improved stress responses, and human service provider might perform the cognitive therapy by themselves.
