this study aims to find out the effect of gratitude training on the balance affect or the change of affect caused by the increase of positive affect which was relatively constant and the decrease of negative affect. This quasi experiment study with pretest posttest control group design involving 10 subjects (experiment) and 9 subjects (control) of poor resident in Surakarta with the low score of subjective well-being. Data were collected by Scale of Positive and Negative Experience (SPANE) in which balance affect was the difference between positive and negative effects. Data were analyzed by independent sample t- test. The result of the study showed that the gratitude training increased the balance affect relatively constant (t.valuepretest- posttest 3,133 > t.table 1,740;p<;0,05 and t.valuepretest-follow up 2,728 > t.table 1,740;p<;0,05). However, if each affect was examined deeper, the gratitude training was shown to increase the positive affect relatively constant (t.valuepretest-posttest 2,558> t.table2, 110; p<;0, 05; t.valuepretest-follow up 2,457>t.table 2,110; p<0, 05), at the other side there was no significant change in negative affect (t.valuepretest-posttest 0,717 < t.table 2,110; p>0, 05; t.valuepretest-follow up 1,837
0, 05). In other words, the positive influence of gratitude training on the balance affect of the poor resident in Surakarta was caused by significant increasing of positive affect that was relatively constant.
