Abstract: 

Introduction: In recent years, in line with the development of various psychotherapies, many studies are conducted on the effect of transactional analysis on depression and its’ consequences on married couple’s behaviors. The current study mainly aimed at investigating the effectiveness of transactional analysis psychotherapy on marital intimacy and sexual satisfaction in females with non- clinical depression.
Methods: The current semi-experimental study with a pretest-posttest design and a control group was conducted on a population of females with non-clinical depression referring to health centers in Tehran, Iran, of which 40 individuals were selected by the purposive sampling method based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria and randomly assigned into experimental (n=20) and control (n=20) groups. The experimental group received 10 psychotherapeutic sessions based on transactional analysis. In the pre- test and post- test stages, both groups completed the Beck depression inventory as well as couple's intimacy needs and the Hudson sexual satisfaction questionnaires. Data were analyzed using covariance analysis with SPSS version 22.
Results: The findings of the study showed a significant difference in the mean of marital intimacy (emotional, psychological, sexual, physical, spiritual, and recreational dimensions) and sexual satisfaction between the experimental and control groups in the post-test stage (P<0.01).
Conclusions: The study results indicated that psychotherapy based on the transactional analysis has a positive impact on marital intimacy and sexual satisfaction in females with non- clinical depression.
