Abstract—Character education is also an important thing to
be developed by school counsellors. The humility is one of
necessary character that based others virtue. The student’s
problems who have low humility tend to have difficulty
accepting criticism/information from others, arrogance, sadism,
selfishness, and bullying behavior. During the Covid-19
pandemic, the learning system used the internet, including
counselling services. This study aims to test an effective
approach in increasing the character of humility between
mindfulness-based cognitive or solution-focused approach. The
group counseling design used is the synchronous for the
counselling process and asynchronous to complete the
worksheet. This experimental study involved 24 students in
each group of 8 students aged 14-17 years. This participant of
research is limited. The scale used to measure humility is
Elliot's theory of adaptation which is designed using a
Likert-scale. There are four aspects, namely openness,
self-forgetfulness, accurate self-assessment, and focus on other
things with a total of 32 items. The reliability humility scale is
0.901, and CAMM α = 0.790. These results indicate no
significant difference in MBCT-SFBT in increasing humility,
whereas MBCT-control & SFBT-control have a significant
difference. That is, the mindfulness group had an increase in the
mean between pretest-posttest and follow-up. This study found
that character enhancement can use mindfulness-based
cognitive and solution-focused approach. Both of them have the
characteristics of character strengths and applicable by school
counsellors. This study has few subjects so that the research
subjects in further research are to increase the number of
studies and make online and non-online comparisons.
