The purpose of this study was to invest the effect of communal task-oriented circuit training on depression and self-efficacy for chronic stroke patients. Thirty subjects were randomly divided into the Communal Task-oriented Circuit training Group (CTCG, n = 15) and Individual Task-oriented Circuit training Group (ITCG, n = 15). All subjects were evaluated by depression scale (CES-D) and Self-Efficacy Scales (SES) before and after the task-oriented circuit training. All patients performed 60 minutes training a day, thrice a week for 6 weeks. After 6 weeks intervention, CTCG showed the significant decreased in CES-D (p<.01) and SES (p<.05). Especially, CES-D showed significant difference between two groups. However, ITCG showed no significant difference in CES-D and SES. These findings indicate that communal task-oriented circuit training can be effective on depression and self-efficacy for chronic stroke patients.
