Low self-esteem is an early prodromal sign of psychosis in adolescents. Early intervention is needed to prevent psychosis among this age group. Thus far, no studies have investigated the effects of group cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and family psychoeducation (FPE) on the self-esteem of adolescents in Indonesia. The present study aimed to explore the influence of CBT and FPE on the self-esteem of adolescents with early prodromal signs of psychosis. An experimental study was conducted. Of the 79 participants selected after screening using the prodromal questionnaire and Rosenberg's self-esteem scale questionnaire, 39 were further classified into the intervention group and 40 into the control group using the random sampling technique. The analysis was performed using the paired t-test and analysis of variance. Results revealed that the RSES score of the CBT and FPE groups was significantly higher than that of the control group (p < .05). CBT and FPE, which are considered early therapeutic interventions, are recommended to increase the self-esteem of adolescents with early prodromal signs of psychosis.
