Abstract

Chronic illness in a child affects all aspects of family life and all family members. In the present study, the aim is to investigate the effectiveness of treatment based on acceptance and commitment to the life satisfaction of mothers of children with cancer. The study population was all mothers who had a child with cancer. In this study, which was conducted as a semi-experimental type of post-test and pre-test with a control group, 32 people were chosen using available sampling and randomly divided into two groups (16 people in the experimental group and 16 people in the control group). A Denier questionnaire was used to evaluate life satisfaction. SPSS version 21 software was applied for statistical analysis of data. The obtained results showed that treatment based on acceptance and commitment increases life satisfaction in mothers of children with cancer. The effect size obtained indicated that a significant percentage of improvement and increase in life satisfaction of mothers of children with cancer can be attributed to treatment based on acceptance and commitment. According to the results obtained regarding the effectiveness of acceptance-based treatment and commitment on life satisfaction in mothers of children with cancer, it can be concluded that many mothers deny the fact that acceptance-based treatment and Commitment lead to improved life satisfaction through acceptance of unavoidable unpleasant feelings.
