Obesity was defined according to the National Physical Health Standard for Students. A total of 80 students were divided into experiment and control group (each 40). The experimental group received 6 interpersonal group counseling interventions for 3 months, once every 2 weeks for 120 min, while the control group received no intervention. 16PF test and Interpersonal Competence Questionnaire were used for pre-test and post-test experiment for data analysis.

Through psychological intervention, active communication, appropriate refusal, self disclosure in the experimental group were significantly higher than the control group ( t=2.48, 3.48, 2.29, P<0.05); the scores of gregariousness, excitement, mental health, adaptation in new environment in the experimental group were significantly higher than those in the control group ( t=2.31, 2.18, 2.10, 2.33, P<0.05), sensitivity and suspicion, concern, tension, adaptation and anxiety were significantly lower than those in the control group ( t=−2.20, −2.08, −2.17, −2.20, −2.14, P<0.05).
