Background and Aim: In any society, students, as one of the essential elements of the educational system of that society, have a unique and decisive role in achieving the goals and perfection of that society. This research was conducted to investigate the effectiveness of mindfulness-based therapy on rumination and worry in Shahed high school students of Minodasht city in 2019.
Materials and Methods: This study was a semi-experimental controlled study with a pre-test and post-test design with a control group. The study population included all the male students of Shahed high schools in Minoodasht city in the academic year of 2018-2019. The sample size was 40 male students who were selected via available sampling and were divided and randomly assigned to one of the two experimental and control groups (20 people in each group). The experimental group underwent mindfulness therapy for eight sessions, and the control group did not receive any therapeutic intervention. In order to collect data, rumination questionnaires of Nalen, Hoeksma and Maro (RRS), and the Pennsylvania State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ) were used. To analyze the data, multivariate covariance analysis was used with SPSS version 21 software.
Results: The average rumination score of the students before the mindfulness training was 55.52±4.13, reaching 47.72±4.61 after training. The average anxiety scores of the students before the mindfulness training was 56.60±2.08, and 51.60±3.16 post-training. This difference was statistically significant (P-Value=0.002).
Conclusion: The results showed that the mindfulness approach was effective in reducing rumination and worry in the study students.
