This study aims to investigate the effectiveness of art therapy through weaving activities in controlling the negative behaviors of schizophrenia patients. Individuals with schizophrenia tend to bring up certain negative behaviors that can hurt themselves and others. These negative behaviors are the response to fight and flight (escape), reaction to resistance, and immobility. Therefore, individuals with schizophrenia could use the technique of making plaits as a therapy to prevent negative behavior in the future. This experimental research uses a pretest-posttest control group design. The participants were selected based on a simple random sampling technique with the criteria of hospitalized patients diagnosed with schizophrenia (n= 8). There were two groups: the experimental group (n=4) and the control group (n=4). The participants completed pre, and post-measures of the severity of psychotic symptoms using the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE); and the Positive and Negative Syndrome Scale-Excited Component (PANSS-EC) to measure the behavior control. The Mann-Whitney test analysis found a difference in behavioral control scores in the experimental and control groups with p = 0.020. This result shows that art therapy through weaving has proven effective in controlling negative behavior in schizophrenic patients.
