The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of Pansori creative therapy focusing on a vocal sound on the self-efficacy of older adults living alone. Participants were 6 aged people who were living alone and who attended S Welfare Center for aged people. Pansori creative programs were provided twice a week for 6 weeks. The program consisted of 5 stages that had 50 minutes for each section. Quantitative data were collected from a pre-and post-self-efficacy scale (Park, Gyung-min, 1994) in order to confirm the changes in self-efficacy of the participants. Results showed statistical significance in self-efficacy scores (p < .05). In addition, positive verbal comments on decreased performance anxiety were found from participants during interviews conducted after the completion of Pansori creative program.
