The life-skills of the partcipants were being measured by Life Skills Profile which was designed to describe the life-skills for mental illness patients. The life-skills on this research consisted of 4 aspects which are self-care, bizzare, withdrawal, and antisocial. The data was analyzed by quantitative methods by comparing the mean score of the pretest and posttest, and by quanlitative methods to describe the observation results. The results indicated that token economy is applicable to improve life-skills on schizophrenic patients without antipsychotics medication. This research also found that self-care skill is the most improved aspects among other life-skills aspects.
