Introduction: Effective communication is the foundation of a healthy and successful family. The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy” (ACT) and "Compassion Focused Therapy" (CFT) and " Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion " on communication patterns of married women suffering from depression and marital conflicts referred to counseling and psychological centers in Mashhad. 
Methods: The method of the current research was semi-experimental of type pre-test, post-test and follow-up with a control group. The statistical population of the study included married women suffering from depression and marital conflicts who referred to counseling and psychological centers in Mashhad in 2019. 60 people were selected by sampling in convenience method. Then by simple randomization (lottery), they were divided into 4 groups: "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy", "Compassion-Focused Therapy", "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion " and the control group. (15 people in each group). Data collection instruments were demographic questionnaire, “Communication Patterns Questionnaire”, “Beck Depression Inventory-II” and “Marital Conflict Questionnaire”. Content validity was calculated by qualitative method and reliability by internal consistency method by calculating Cronbach's alpha coefficient of the instruments. The first intervention group received "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy" and the second intervention group "Compassion-Focused Therapy" and the third intervention group "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion" in 8 90-minute training sessions, and the control group was on the waiting list for received intervention. Data analysis was done with SPSS. 21.
Results: There is a significant difference between the pre-test, post-test and follow-up communication patterns in the intervention and control groups (P<0/01). The results of the Bonferroni pairwise comparison test indicate that the significance level of the test of all 3 intervention groups with the control group is less than 0.05 (P<0/01) and this difference is more for the "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion" group. 
Conclusions: "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy" and “Compassion Focused Therapy" and "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion" are effective on communication patterns and "Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Enriched with Compassion" has been more effective in improving communication patterns over time. Therefore, it is suggested that the principles of this type of therapy be used in cultural and family centers such as family cultural centers of the country to prevent conflict in the future relationships of couples by using short-term training courses.
