Abstract

 Introduction: Disabilities have a physical and psychological dimension and as they affect one' s physical health, they also affects psycho-social adjustment and psychological well-being. The aim of this study was to determine the Effectiveness of HAPPINESS training program based on Fordyce cognitive behavioral theory on QUALITY OF LIFE and ability to tolerate the disorder in women with physical-motor disabilities.Methods: This study was quasi-experimental. The study population included all females with physical-motor disabilities registered at the Association of Physical- Motor Disabilities of Ardabil city, among which 30 were selected by the available sampling method and were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. After running the pretest on both groups, the experimental intervention was carried out during 8 sessions of 90 minutes each and with one session per week.After completion of the treatment program, the post-test was taken. To collect the data, the World Health Organization QUALITY OF LIFE Questionnaire and Simon and Gahr distress tolerance scale was used. Also, for data analysis, analysis of covariance was performed.Results: The results showed that there were significant differences between the two groups in mean scores of QUALITY OF LIFE and distress tolerance after HAPPINESS training. The scores of QUALITY OF LIFE and distress tolerance in the experimental group were significantly increased after the training of HAPPINESS based on the Fordyce cognitive behavioral theory (P>0.001).Conclusions: According to the obtained results, it could be suggested that training of HAPPINESS based on the Fordyce cognitive behavioral theory could improve the QUALITY OF LIFE and ability to tolerate the disorder in females with physical- motor disabilities.
