Summary/Abstract: The present study was designed to explore the efficacy of rational emotive behaviour therapy in the management of depression among HIV infected women. Random sample of 50 HIV infected women were selected for the study. The selected sample were allocated to experimental (N=25) and control groups (N=25). Quasi experimental one group pretest post test control group design was chosen for the study. Hamilton Depression Scale was administered to assess depression before and after the intervention. Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) was employed as the intervention to the experimental group. Appropriate statistical tools were used to test the hypotheses. The result revealed that there is a significant decrease in the level of depression among HIV infected women after REBT.
