Introduction: Female infertility is a problem that affects almost every aspect of women's lives. Infertile women usually experience stress, anxiety and depression. This study aimed to compare the effect of Iranian Positive Therapy and Acceptance -Commitment Therapy (ACT) on depression, anxiety, and stress of infertile women in Isfahan City.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study with a pretest-posttest design and three-month follow-up, 45 infertile women referred to the Isfahan Fertility and Infertility Center were selected by the purposeful sampling and randomly assigned to three groups of Iranian Positive Therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and control in 2016. Data were collected using the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale-DASS- 42. The validity and reliability of this questionnaire were confirmed in the previous study. In the present study, reliability was measured by the Cronbach's alpha. Data were analyzed by the SPSS 18 Software.
Results: There was a significant difference in stress, anxiety and depression in the post-test and follow-up between the experimental (Iranian positive therapy and acceptance and commitment therapy) and control groups (P < 0.01, F = 10.3), but there was no significant difference between two types of therapies (P > 0.05).
Conclusions: Both of the therapeutic methods are equally effective in reducing anxiety, stress and depression in infertile women. Therefore, it can be recommended that these therapies be performed to reduce psychological problems in infertile women.
