Objective: Obsessive-compulsive disorder is a debilitating anxiety disorder characterized by the obsessions and compulsive actions. Meta cognition is a multi-faceted concept which includes knowledge, processes, and strategies that evaluates, monitors, or controls the cognition. Primary maladaptive schemas are used as a model for processing of experiences and determine behaviors, thoughts and feelings and relationships with other people throughout life. The aim of this study was to investigate the components of primary maladaptive schemas and meta-cognitive beliefs with signs of obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Methods: This study was correlative. Among the students of Islamic Azad University of Ahvaz as the population, 384 students (192 girls and 192 boys) were selected through stratified random sampling method. Measurement tools included: Meta cognition Questionnaire (MCQ=30), Schema Questionnaire- short form (SQ-SF), and Maudzley Obsessive – Compulsive Inventory (MOCI).

Results: The results showed that there was a positive significant relationship between primary maladaptive schemas and OCD in students (r=0.532, p<0.001). Also, for linear combination of the components of primary maladaptive schemas and meta cognitive beliefs with obsessive-compulsive students, the multiple correlation coefficient was equal to 0.754 and the impact factor (% variance) of effectiveness of independent variables on dependent variables was 0.568 (p<0.05)

Conclusion: The results of this study show that with increasement of primary maladaptive schemas, obsessive-compulsive disorder in students will increase and also with increasing meta cognitive beliefs, obsessive-compulsive disorder will increase.
