Background and Objectives: Life skills include group of skills and abilities which help individuals resolve issues in their lives and control conflicts in interpersonal relationship.

Among 148 students who filled the questionnaires, 30 students who had the least subjective well_being score were randomly separated into two groups of 15 students (here called intervention and control groups). The data was gathered by revised subjective well_being Questionnaire prepared by Molavi in 2008 which involves 39 expressions, from 1 to 5 Likert scale, and also by the researcher’s own questionnaire containing demographic information. The intervention group took part in 8 of 90-minute training sessions and the pre test and one-month follow up scores were then analsyed by co-variance test using SPSS software.
