Abstract: 
the study aimed to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on social self-efficacy and depression among female adolescents protected by welfare organization of Qazvin province. The study was quasi-experimental with pretest-posttest control group design. Twelve orphaned and neglected females were selected from a care center in Qazvin using available sampling method. The participants were randomly assigned into either experimental or control groups. The experimental group received 10 sessions of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for two months. Each session lasted 70 to 90 minutes. Both groups were assessed by the Adolescents Social Self-Efficacy Scale (Connolly, 1989) and the Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale (2002) in pre-test and post-test stages, and at the three months follow-up. The results of covariance analysis indicated that social self-efficacy increased significantly and depression reduced significantly in experimental group. These results remained unchanged at the three months follow-up. The findings suggested the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy in increasing social self-efficacy and reducing depression in orphaned and neglected females.
