TThepurpose ofthis studywas to identify the relationshipbetweenself-image,interpersonal relationshipandpsychological well-being of persons affected by Hansen's disease through curve estimation of simple regression analysis. The results of the study firstly indicated that the communication, openness and understanding had a lower linear increase than 45 degree slope with increasing self-image. Despite the U shape increase of satisfaction and friendliness, confidence and susceptibility had an increased inverted U-shape showing a difference in the type of change. Second, positive well-being had an increase of < 45 degree slope with increasing self-image but as negative well-being increased in an inverted U-shape with the increase in self-image, it started decreasing after reaching the 3 points peak of self-image.
