Objective: This paper aims to explore and analyze the application of group counseling based on positive psychology theory in postoperative total hip arthroplasty. Methods: From July 2021 to April 2023, 110 patients with total hip arthroplasty admitted to the Department of Traumatology and Orthopedics in our hospital were selected as subjects of this study. They were divided into study group and control group by simple random sampling, with 55 cases in each group. The study group received group counseling based on positive psychology theory, and the control group received general nursing care. Harris hip function score, activities of daily living score (ADL), Hamilton depression rating scale (HAM-D), Hamilton anxiety rating scale (HAM-A), and postoperative complications were compared between the two groups. Results: Before nursing, the Harris and ADL scores of the two groups were compared, and the difference was not statistically significant (P > 0.05). After nursing, the Harris and ADL scores of the study group were significantly better than those of the control group, the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Before nursing, the HAM-D and HAM-A scores of the two groups were compared, and there was no statistically significant difference (P > 0.05). After nursing, the HAM-D and HAM-A scores of the study group were significantly better than those of the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). The incidence of postoperative complications in the study group was significantly lower than that in the control group, and the difference was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Based on the theory of positive psychology, the effect of group counseling after total hip arthroplasty is more significant, and it is recommended to be applied in clinical practice.
