Introduction: Multiple sclerosis (M.S) is a progressive chronic disease of central nervous system with different symptoms and physical-psychological disabling effects, which brings about various problems for the patient. The present study was aimed to investigate the effect of compassion-focused therapy (CFT) on Resiliency of women with multiple sclerosis. Materials and method: The present research was a semi-empirical intervention conducted by pretest-posttest with control group design. The research population included all the women with active case file in M.S association of Tehran in 2016. The sample constituted of 30 female patients which were selected by available sampling method and based on exclusion and inclusion criteria of the study and their obtained scores in the questionnaire. The sample were assigned into experiment and control groups (15 individuals per group) by random assignment method. The study tool was the Connor- Davidson Resilience Scale (2003). After conducting the pretest for both groups, subjects of the experiment group received eight weekly 2-hour session of CFT in group. The control group was put in the waiting list. The data were analyzed thorough univariate covariance analysis (ANCOVA) in SPSS v18. Result: Results of the covariance analysis suggested that, by controlling the effect of pretest, there is a significant difference between experiment and control groups (F = 78.63 and P<0.01), which indicates the effectiveness of CFT in improving resiliency among the subjects of the experiment group. Conclusion: CFT, as a new therapeutic method, is likely to be an appropriate intervention for reducing psychological problems and increasing mental health among M.S patients. It is recommended that M.S associations across Iran would use this therapeutic method for enhancing psychological health of patients.
