Background&Objective: Obsessive beliefs as disturbing thoughts in the mind have a destructive effect on psychological and behavioral balance. Of the major problems that obsessive individuals face, it is a low resilience; psychologically, resilient or invulnerable, that is, the ability of some individuals to overcome what is severely threatening their growth. On the other hand, in this research, we try to reduce obsession and increase the resilience with the use of psychometric approach. Although there is evidence of the effect of allegory on resonance, in Iran, however, there has not yet been a study titled "The Effect of Logical Therapy on the Reduction of Obsessive Beliefs and Increasing Perseverance." Therefore, the present study was conducted with the aim of determining the effect of group therapy on reduction of obsessive-compulsive beliefs and increased resiliency in women.
Methods: This was a quasi-experimental pre-test, post-test, and follow-up with control and experimental group. The ISAR of the Obsessive-Verbal Beliefs-OBQ 44 tests and the Conner-Davidson Consolidation Scale (CD-RISC). The statistical population consisted of all women in Tehran who were selected through a population sampling method of twenty women who scored higher scores on this scale of obsessive beliefs. To obtain information from a community of mothers of the students, an educational complex was used in Tehran's 3rd District. The questionnaire of obsessive-compulsive beliefs was given to one hundred people aged between 30 and 45 years old. Twenty people who scored higher scores on this scale were selected as samples. The criterion for entering the community was only the scale of obsessive beliefs. After selecting the sample, the resilience scale was also performed as a second variable (another pre-test) on the sample. Then, 10 people in the experimental group and 10 in the control group were randomly assigned. In the interval between pre-test and post-test, the training group underwent a group of 10 sessions of semantic therapy. Post-extraction research data were analyzed by repeated measurements analysis using SPSS software.
Results: To analyze the variance for repeated measures, we examined the assumptions of this test. Shapiro Wilk test was used to check the normal scores. The results showed that the distribution of data is normal. Levin's findings also showed that the homogeneous assumption of covariance of data and the slope of regression is established. The results of Mocheli's test also showed that there is no spheroidal assumption, and therefore we can use the result of in-group tests with moderate degrees of freedom and the Hove-Felt correction. The mean of the irradiation variables for the control group in the pretest was 67.33, in the post-test, 66.22 and in the follow-up period, was 67.66, and for the experimental group in the pretest, 68.22, in the post-test, 82.77,and the follow up was 78.22. The mean of obsessive-compulsive beliefs in the control group was 198.00 in the pretest, 184.44 in the post test and 193.11 in the follow-up phase, and for the experimental group in the pretest 213.22, in the post-test 122.55 and in the stage the follow up was 124.22. Also, the results showed that the f value in the obsessive-compulsive belief variable was significant at α=0.05, and considering that the mean of the experimental group in the obsessive-compulsive belief variable was lower than that of the control group in the post-test and follow-up stages, then the group's Logotherapy The reduction of obsessive-compulsive beliefs and its components, which included accountability from risk assessment, perfectionism versus the need for assurance, and the importance of thinking toward control of behavior, was effective (p<0.01). Also, the findings showed that the value of f in the resiliency variable was significant at the level of α=0.05, and considering that the mean of the experimental group in the resiliency variable was increased in comparison with the control group in the post-test and follow-up stages; therefore, A group is effective in increasing the resiliency (p<0.01).
Conclusion: This research investigated effect of logotherapy on obsessive beliefs and resilience in women. The result suggested improvement on component of resilience in the experimental group, namely perfectionism/certainty (PC), responsibility and the overestimation of threat (RT) and importance/thought control (ICT). Thus the treatment method is suggested to increase resilience.
