Background & Aims: The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of group-based therapy on commitment and acceptance in increasing life satisfaction in patients with empty nest syndrome.
Materials & Methods: The semi-experimental research had pretest design with control group. The statistical population included all middle aged people who referred to Kashmar Psychiatric Center in 2016. And 30 volunteers were selected randomly and were divided into two groups of 15 experimental and control groups. The experimental group received 8 consecutive 90-minute treatment sessions based on admission and commitment, and the control group did not receive any treatment. Both groups responded to the life-satisfaction questionnaire (SWLS) at the beginning and the end of treatment. Statistical analysis of the data was done with SPSS-22 and inferential statistics (covariance analysis).
Results: Findings showed that the mean of life satisfaction scores in the post test of the experimental group was significantly higher than the mean post-test scores in the control group.
Conclusion: The results showed that a group based on commitment and acceptance therapy leads to an increase in life satisfaction in people with empty nest syndrome. It can therefore be considered as a therapeutic approach.
