Sanggar X was founded on the concerns of its chairman, over the problems often faced by street musicians. Foster children in Sanggar X feel anxiety because of various problems they face both at home, school, or when they are working on the streets. The purpose of this research is to reduce the anxiety level of Sanggar X foster children by using Self-Talk, Imagery, and Cognitive Restructuring training. The subjects in this study consisted of 15 Sanggar X foster children, Cibinong. Training is carried out by giving pre-test, conducting training, giving post-test and evaluating training. Pre-test and post-test in this study used the Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale questionnaire. The results of this study were a decrease in anxiety levels in 15 foster children of Studio X.
