This study compared the effectiveness of group growth-writing program on anxiety, powerlessness, hope and guilt of mother with pediatric cancer patient with those of waiting-list control group. Participants were assigned to two groups: a growth-writing group (N=14), a waiting-list control group (N=14). At baseline, post-treatment and follow-up, all participants completed questionnaires. The growth-writing program was delivered in three sessions. As a result, growth-writing group showed significant decrease in anxiety, guilt and significant increase in hope compared to the waiting-list control group without any activities. However, powerlessness did not have significant change. This study examined that growth-writing could be an effective intervention for mothers with the pediatric cancer patients. Limitations and suggestions for further studies were included.
