Abstract: 
Female-headed household (FHH) are exposed to psychological problems due to the experience of persistent and chronic pressure. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of the mindfulness training on psychological well-being (PW) and resiliency of FHH. This quasi-experimental study was of pretest-posttest and follow-up control group design. The population included all FHH covered by Fatima Zahra's Charity Center in 2017 among whom, 30 cases were selected according to the inclusion criteria and random sampling and were placed in control and experimental groups. The Experimental group received eight 90 minute sessions based on mindfulness training. The short form of Reef psychological well-being scale (Reef, 1989) and Resiliency Scale (Connor & Davidson, 2003) were used. Data were analyzed by Analysis of covariance test. The results indicated the effectiveness of the mindfulness training on increasing PW in the stages of post-test and follow-up (P<0/001) as well as resiliency in the stages of post-test (P<0/001) and follow-up (P<0/05). Mindfulness increases the PW and resiliency by acceptance and experience of emotions, creation of self-awareness and the avoidance of pattern of automatic thinking and can be used as training in rehabilitation and improving the quality of life of FHH.
