Methods: For this study, 45 women with obsessive-compulsive disorder in the city of Khorramabad were selected by convenience sampling and were randomly assigned in experimental and control groups using the quasi-experimental research of pretest-posttest design (15 people were in the experimental group based on the acceptance and commitment therapy, 15 people were in the meta cognitive treatment experimental group and 15 people were in the control group) The Maudsley Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (1980) was used. The data were analyzed by ANOVA.

Results: The ANOVA findings showed that there is a significant difference between the groups (p<0.001). Also, the results of the post hoc test showed that the difference between the groups based on the acceptance and commitment therapy and meta cognitive treatment and the control group was significant (p<0.001), while the experimental groups had no meaningful differences (p>0.05).
