The dependent variables were selfesteem, depression and social problem solving ability. The data were analyzed by Fisher's exact test, t test, and repeated measures analysis of variance using SAS program. Results: PAIP was effective in increasing self-esteem and reducing depression, and partially showed significant positive effects on participants’ social problem solving ability, suggesting increased levels of positive problem orientation and decreased avoidance style in the social problem solving ability subscales.
