Background: Divorce is one of the most stressful losses and it causes emotional distress and behavioral problems in individuals. Meanwhile, women are more vulnerable than men to the consequences of divorce. The objective of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of Acceptance and Commitment Based Training (ACT) on cognitive-emotional regulation, resilient, and self-control strategies in divorced women.
Materials and Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental study with a pre-test and post-test with a control group, and the sampling method is available sampling. The samples were selected from all divorced women referring to Justice Counseling Center in the city of Babol, in the second half of the year 2017 and the first half of the year 2018, and divided into 60 experimental and control groups. Data collection tools included Cognitive Emotional Strategies Questionnaire, Resilient Scale and Self-Control Questionnaire. For implementation, initially, a pre-test was taken from each group. Then, the Acceptance and Commitment-Based Training (ACT) held for the experimental group in12 sessions and each session with 90 minutes. Then, the post-test was taken from both groups. Data were analyzed using the multivariate covariance analysis test and SPSS.22 software.
Results: The study revealed that acceptance and commitment-based training were effective in cognitive regulation of positive emotion (F = 67.88, P <0.0001), cognitive regulation of negative emotion (F = 62.11, P <0.0001), resilient (F = 61.95, P <0.0001), and self-controlling (F = 38.36, P <0.0001). The mean (standard deviation) of cognitive regulation of positive emotion, cognitive regulation of negative emotion, resilient, and self-controlling in pre-test and post-test were not significantly different from each other (P <0.05).
Conclusion: The study showed that Acceptance and Commitment-based Training (ACT) led to an increase in positive cognitive regulation, resilient, self-controlling, and a decrease in negative cognitive regulation in divorced women.
