Aim and Background: Mental health is the ideal goal of health care, and a treatment is useful when it increases mental health. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of treatment based on acceptance of and commitment to mental health and experiential avoidance in PTSD patients.
Materials and Methods: This is a quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test design with two experimental and control groups. The study population included veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder after the incidence of the Martyr and Veterans Affairs Foundation of Shiraz in 2017-2018. Of the 150 veterans diagnosed with PTSD, 30 were selected using the available sampling method and randomly divided into two groups of experiments and controls (each group with 16 members). To collect the data, they answered the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ) and the second version of Admission and Action Questionnaire (AAQ-II). Covariance analysis was used to analyze the data.
Results: The results showed that the mean scores of mental health in the experimental group increased in the post-test stage compared to the pre-test stage. Findings also showed that there was a decrease in mean scores of experiential avoidance in the experimental group in the post-test stage compared to the pre-test stage. Analysis of covariance showed that there was a statistically significant difference between the mean score of mental health and experiential avoidance before and after the intervention (P <0.05).
Conclusion: The findings of the current study increase mental health, improve quality of life in patients with post-traumatic stress disorder, represent new horizons in clinical interventions and can be used as an effective intervention method.
