The value of self-acceptance pretest between treatment and control group showed p=0,139, and posttest between treatment and control group showed that p=0,000. Treatment group in Elderly’s Health Center, showed that elderly’s self-acceptance increased during the pretest and posttest with p = 0.001. The value of self-acceptance pretest betwen treatment and control group showed p=0,226, and posttest between treatment and control group showed p= 0.000.
