Background & Objective: A healthy family environment is a major contributor to mental health. Environment can be adjusted so as not to destroy life if not improve it. The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy on the social and emotional adjustment of mothers of children with mental and physical disabilities.

The participants were divided into experiment and control groups randomly and completed Bell’s Adjustment Inventory. The experiment group received 8 sessions of group ACT.
Results: The results of MANCOVA confirmed the positive effect of group ACT on social (P<0.001) and emotional adjustment (P<0.001), with a significant effectiveness of treatment.
Conclusion: We can recommend group ACT to help mothers of children with disabilities cope with their problems.
