The population was randomly divided into an experimental group and a control group (11 participants in each group). The Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI), and Hostility items in The Symptom Checklist-90- revised (SCL-90-R) were performed as pre tests for each group. After 8 sessions of training Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (4 weeks, each week 2 sessions for 2 hours) for experimental group, in order to measure the dependent variables of depression, hostility, state and trait anxiety. The above tools were repeated as post tests for both groups.

  Results : The results of analysis of covariance indicated that there were significant differences in depression, hostility and state-trait anxiety post-test scores between the experimental and control groups in depression, hostility and state-trait anxiety post test scores (p<0.0001).

  Conclusion : Accordingly, it seems group mindfulness training has a remarkable effect on reduction of depression, hostility, and anxiety in men with coronary heart disease.
