Background & Aims: Anxiety disorders are the most common diagnoses for mental disorders. This study aims to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on reducing rumination, dysfunctional attitude and negative automatic thoughts in patients stricken with generalized anxiety.

Materials & Methods: This quasi-experimental study is done with pretest-posttest module with control group. The statistical population consisted of approximately 100 patients with generalized anxiety who referred to Avaye Omid Psychological Clinic in Rasht in the first six months of 2016 and were selected using available sampling method. Then, 30 patients stricken with the generalized anxiety were selected and randomly divided into two groups as control and experimental groups. Eight sessions of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy were done on the experimental group, and the control group was waiting for treatment. The examinees in two above groups were studied in two stages of pretest and posttest using of rumination, dysfunctional attitude, and negative automatic thoughts questionnaires. The multivariate of covariance was used in the analysis of the results.

Results: The covariance analysis showed that the mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on reducing rumination: (F=68/981, P=0/0001), dysfunctional attitude: (F=18/033, P=0/0001) and negative automatic thoughts (attitudes): (F=145/744, P=0/0001) & (frequency): (F=68/524, P=0/0001) was effective on female patients with generalized anxiety in the experimental group

Conclusion: It seems that psychological interventions have a significant impact on reducing anxiety. Therefore, it is recommended to use this treatment method along with other effective methods of psychotherapy and medication use.
