Psychological well-being (PWB) is synonymous with happiness which is important for every prisoner. PWB is important for prisoners considering prisoners have different lives and Prisoners are increasingly depressed by the label of villains from the community. This research aimed to determine the effectiveness of group counseling with the solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT) approach to improve prisoners' pwb. This study used a quasi-experimental design with repeated measurements (pre-test, post-test, and follow-up). The research subjects were divided into two, namely 7 prisoners in the experimental group and 7 prisoners in the control group. Subjects were selected using purposive sampling technique based on inclusion criteria and PWB levels obtained from the psychological well-being scale. This study's results indicate that group counseling with the SFBT approach is proven to be effective in increasing PWB of Class II A prisoners in Pekalongan City during the pre-test vs post-test, and post-test vs follow-up. This study's results can be used as a consideration, reference, and alternative for counselors to use the SFBT approach in dealing with problems related to psychology, especially PWB.
