Psychological problems are closely related to disaster events, both immediately after the disaster in the form of acute stress and trauma that occur later as from the inability of survivors to adapt to the stressors they face. Rajabasa sub-district is one of the areas in South Lampung with the areas worst affected by the Tsunami, especially the villages of Kunjir, East Way Muli and West Way Muli. The purpose of this study was to determine the form of psychological treatment for survivors in Rajabasa Subdistrict, South Lampung. This research was conducted using the Static Group Comparison Design method by providing treatment in the form of providing psychological assistance and supportive therapy in the form of therapeutic activities to address the psychological problems of survivors. The population in this study were all survivors affected by the December 2018 Sunda Strait Tsunami in Rajabasa Subdistrict, South Lampung. The sample of this study was taken by purposive sampling method with a sample size of 60 people. Samples were divided into two groups, namely groups that only received assistance and groups that received assistance and activity therapy. Data was collected by interview using a self reporting questionnaire to assess the psychological condition of survivors and feelings of trauma from the tsunami disaster that had been experienced. The analysis showed that most respondents experienced psychological problems (64.9%) and most experienced trauma (83.5%). The results of the analysis using the t test obtained p-value <0.005. These results indicate there is an influence of psychological assistance with therapeutic activities on the psychological condition of survivors. It is recommended to use counseling in the form of psychological assistance and maintain survivors' activities in the form of supportive therapy so that survivors continue their lives and still feel meaningful.
