Abstract:   (2379 Views)
Objective: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of self cognitive behavioral therapy on obsessive-compulsive disorder symptoms in out-patients presented to psychological service centers of Isfahan, Iran. 
Method: 10 patients with obsessive compulsive disorder were selected using temporal random method and were randomly assigned to two groups of five, including an experimental and a control group. Maudsley Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (MOCI) was administered to both groups as pretest. The experimental group received self cognitive behavioral therapy for two weeks and the subjects in the control group were in the waiting list. 
Results: Results of analysis of covariance showed that instructing self cognitive behavioral therapy in the experimental group had caused a significant reduction in obsessive compulsive symptoms in comparison with the control group (P=0.003).
Conclusion: This study suggests that self cognitive behavioral therapy is effective in reducing obsessive compulsive symptoms.
