Objective: To determine the effects of group psychoeducation program based on Transformative Satir’s model on depressive symptoms in Thai women with Major Depressive Disorder. Method: The samples of this quasi experimental research were 24 Thai women with major depressive disorder in Chiangrai Prachanukroh hospital. With random assignment, 11 participants (M = 46.9, SD = 9.2 years old) underwent to 6-weekly-session psychoeducation program while 13 samples (M = 42.5, SD = 7.2 years old) experienced routine care. The researcher measured the severity of depressive symptoms by using The Hamilton Rating Scale named pretest (per inclusion criteria requirement), posttest 1 (6-weekly-sessions ended), posttest 2 (2 weeks after intervention). One factor repeated measure ANOVA was used to analyze the data. Results: Mean depressive symptom differed statistically significant between groups (F1, 22 = 12.786, p = .002). The result revealed reductions of the mean depressive symptom between experiment (M = 5.32, SD = 0.576) and control (M = 8.115, SD = 0.576) groups. Also, Mean depressive symptom differed statistically significant between time periods (F1, 22 = 13.801, p = .001). The mean depressive symptom at 6-weekly-sessions ended (M = 8.034, SD = 0.614) was higher than 2 weeks after intervention (M = 5.339, SD = 0.452). Conclusion: The group psychoeducation program significantly elicited decreases in depressive symptoms across groups and time periods. Effective the group psychoeducation program implementation combined with standard treatment in women with depressive disorder will help the patients enhance recovering mental condition.
