The study was conducted to design and evaluate the effectiveness of Group Schema Therapy (GST) program to modify coping strategies in Iranian women with a history of spouse infidelity. In this study, first, Coping Strategies Modification Program was evaluated. Quasi-experimental research with random sample design with pre-test, post-test and follow-up was dealt with.
In this study, the subjects were divided into experimental and control groups. The population was all those who had participated in GST program, eventually 20 subjects were screened out of 55 with clinical interview and inclusion and exclusion criteria, and answered Young Schema Therapy Questionnaire, and Yang's Compensation and Avoidance Questionnaire in the pre-test, post-test, and follow-up phases. Then, the 10 sessions of 120-minute weekly group therapy was performed in the experimental group and the control group did not receive any intervention. Multivariate analysis of covariance with repetitive measurements was used for data analysis.
The results showed a significant difference between the mean of post-test in the control and experimental groups with the mean scores of the experimental group significantly lower than that of the control group.
The results showed that GST program improved coping strategies in Iranian women with a history of spouse infidelity.
