Aims: The consequences of war are profound, complex, and continuous and not only stopped by suffering the survived individuals of war from physical and mental disorders or damages, but also penetrate to their families and caregivers. The objective of the present study is to study the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment based therapy on the assertiveness of imposed war veterans' daughters.
Materials & Methods: This is semi-experimental research (pretest-posttest with a control group) performed on veterans' daughters' population of Falavarjan town in 2017. 30 individuals were selected using Purposive Sampling method and randomly assigned in two test and control groups (15 individuals for each group). The Test group received acceptance and commitment based therapy during 8 sessions, but the control group did not receive any training. Assertiveness Questionnaire of Gmbryl and Ritchie was used as a research tool. The data were analyzed using SPSS 23 software through single variable covariance, independent sample T-test, and chi-square test.
Findings: In post-test phase, the mean of assertiveness scores in the test group had a significant difference compared to the control group (p<0.05) and the mean of scores in the test group was more than the control group.
