عنوان مقاله [English]
The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of hardiness training on the psychological well-being of multiple sclerosis patients. The research method was quasi-experimental with control and experimental group and the statistical population included all patients with multiple sclerosis in Karaj city in 2017, among which 30 were selected by sampling method and were randomly assigned to control and experimental groups and answered to Ryff psychological well-being scale (1989). After 10 hardness training sessions, the two groups responded to the questionnaire for posttest. The results of this study showed that psychological hardiness training has a significant effect on the components of autonomy, environmental mastery, personal growth, positive relationship with others, purpose in life and self-acceptance. Due to the high cost of drug treatments for controlling multiple sclerosis symptoms as well as numerous complications caused by them, the use of complementary therapies is increasing in these patients. It, therefore, seems that it would be possible to increase the hardiness training as a complementary psychological well-being treatment for patients with multiple sclerosis.
