Introduction: Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) imposes a lot of difficulties and calamities on parents particularly mothers due to close relationship with their children. The present study aimed to examine the effect of transdiagnostic treatment on entrapment and boredom of mothers of children with ASD.
Methods: This randomized clinical trial study was conducted on all mothers with ASD children in Isfahan City. Forty participants were initially selected using the convenience sampling method and were randomly divided into two equal groups of control and experimental (n= 20, each group). The transdiagnostic treatment was conducted during 12 sessions of 60 minutes each.
Data were collected using the Entrapment Scale and Multidimensional State Boredom Scale. The validity and reliability were measured and confirmed in the previous studies. Data were analyzed by the SPSS 21 software.
Results: Results showed a significant difference in internal entrapment (P = 0.001), external entrapment (P = 0.004), disengagement (P = 0.005), high arousal (P = 0.001), low arousal (P = 0.004), inattention (P = 0.010) and time perception (P = 0.022) between the two experimental and control groups in both pre-test and post-test.
Conclusions: It seems that the unified transdiagnostic treatment is an appropriate method for reducing psychological problems (such as entrapment and boredom) in mothers with ASD children. Therefore, it is suggested to use this approach with other treatments in educational and treatment centers.
