Parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have anxiety about their children's future. This anxiety affects the psychological well-being of parents. Therefore, parents need advice that reduces stress. Hypnotherapy methods have proven to reduce anxiety in various cases. For this reason, this study wants to determine the effectiveness of Islamic hypnotherapy in overcoming the fear of parents with ASD children. This study uses a pre-experimental method consisting of one group, a group that takes treatment with the Islamic hypnotherapy method. Measurement of anxiety about the child's future is giving a scale of stress to the child's future, before and after providing an intervention. The results of filling the range tested using SPSS with Wilcoxon Signed Rank Test Z = -2.251 and Asymp. Sig. (2-tailed) = 0.024 (p<0.05), which means that Islamic hypnotherapy can reduce the anxiety faced by parents who have autism children.
