Aims: Marital satisfaction is one of the factors that can affect not only on the life quality of veterans but also on their families and society. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy and logotherapy on marital satisfaction of veterans' spouses.
Materials and Methods: In this quasi-experimental research with pretest-posttest design, with two experimental groups and one control group, 60 people of veterans' spouses were studied in Tehran city in 2017. They were selected by convenience sampling method and randomly assigned into acceptance and commitment therapy group, logotherapy group, and control group (n=20 in each group). Experimental groups were treated in 9 sessions- in 120 minutes, while the control group received no cure. The research tools were a demographic questionnaire and Enrich marital satisfaction questionnaire. Data were analyzed using SPSS 18 software, through one-way analysis of covariance and Tukey's post hoc test.
Findings: By controlling the effects of pre-test scores, there was a significant difference between the mean scores of marital satisfaction of the groups in the posttest stage (F=6.041; p=0.004). The mean scores of marital satisfaction in the acceptance and commitment therapy group (p=0.023) and the logotherapy group (p=0.006) were significantly different in comparison with the control group. There was no significant difference between two experimental groups and both methods had the same effectiveness (p=0.873).
Conclusion: Acceptance and commitment therapy and logotherapy both are effective in increasing the marital satisfaction of veterans' spouses.
