Abstract
Positive psychology and peer mutual aid is both on the basis of humanism and the common value essence of them are to help people to help themselves. Therefore, based on the perspective of positive psychology Peer Mutual Aid is representing the general trend of college mental health education. As an example of the peer mutual aid on adaptability,we have designed a comparative study method of an experimental group and a controlled group. We carried out 6 group counseling activities in the experimental group, in order to improve the adaptability to the experimental group, and the controlled group does not do any intervention. Two adaptability tests were carried out on the two classes before the intervention and after intervention. Then we find that the total score and the various dimensions of the experimental class were significantly improved (p <0.001) after the intervention. We also find that the total score and five factors were significantly improved in the experimental group (p <0.05) compared with the controlled group. So we can come to the conclusion that the ideas of peer mutual aid group activities have a significant effect on enhancing the adaptability based on positive psychology.
