Aims: Neuro-Linguistic programming refers to specific relationships between neurological processes, linguistic and behavioral patterns learned through planning. The main purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of training neuro-linguistic programming strategies on improving the quality of life of veterans' wives from 25-50%.
Materials & Methods: In this semi-experimental study, with pre-test post-test design with control group, 30 Veterans wives from 25-50% in the cities of Tehran province were selected randomly and divided in experimental and control groups (each group of 15 people). The tool used in this study was a short-scale quality of life. The training plan was submitted to the experimental group in 10 sessions. Data analysis was done using statistical software SPSS 23, after the calculation of the difference between the pre-test and post-test scores, the multivariate covariance analysis (Mancova) was used for both groups.
Findings: Significant positive changes were observed between the mean scores of the subscales of mental health, physical health, social relationships, perception of the living environment and in general the quality of life of veterans' veterans of the experimental group at the stage of verbal neural planning training (p<0.05); While this difference was not observed in the control group and in almost all subscales of quality of life in this group (control) were close to each other at the pre and post education stage and they did not show any difference (p>0.05).
