Abstract: 

Introduction: Type II diabetes is one of the most common chronic complications, which can reduce happiness and hopefulness among patients. Therefore, life skills training can be applied to promote happiness and optimism among diabetic patients.
This study aimed to investigate the effects of life skills training on happiness and hopefulness among patients with type II diabetes, referring to healthcare centers of Pakdasht, Iran.
Methodology: In this quasi-experimental study, a pre-test, post-test, control-group design was applied. The study population consisted of all patients with type II diabetes, referring to healthcare centers of Pakdasht in 2015. Overall, 40 patients were selected via simple random sampling and were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups (n=20 per group). The experimental group received 10 sessions of training on life skills (90 min per session), while the control group did not receive any training. The groups completed the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire (OHQ) and Hope Questionnaire (HQ) for pre-test and post-test assessments. For data analysis, multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) was performed, using SPSS version 19.
Results: The findings showed a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in terms of happiness and hopefulness. In other words, life skills training led to a significant increase in happiness and hopefulness among patients with type II diabetes (P
£0.0005).
Conclusion: Based on the findings, it is suggested that therapists, counselors and clinical psychologists apply life skills training for promoting happiness and hopefulness among patients with type II diabetes.
