Abstract: 

Subjective wellbeing plays an integral role in the onset and severity of depression. A one group pre-test post-test study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of selected positive psychotherapy technique called Gratitude Journaling on subjective wellbeing among depressive patients. The objectives were to assess the subjective wellbeing among depressive patients, determine the effectiveness of Gratitude Journaling on subjective wellbeing among depressive patients and identify the association between pre-test subjective wellbeing and socio-demographic characteristics. 30 depressive in-patients were selected using purposive sampling technique fromSree Ramakrishna Ashrama Charitable Hospital, Sasthamangalam after screening with Hamilton depression rating scale. The pre-test level of subjective wellbeing was assessed using researcher prepared Subjective wellbeing assessment rating scale followed by the administration of Gratitude Journaling technique for the consecutive 2 weeks duration. The post test was conducted two days after the interventions. The mean post test scores (38.73) was significantly higher than the mean pre-test score (19.83). There was a significant association between pre-test subjective wellbeing and level of depression (P<0.05). Hence it was concluded that there was significant improvement in subjective wellbeing among patients with depression after practising gratitude journaling technique.
