      Gastrointestinal disorders, as one of the most common physical complaints, are examples of the relationship between mental and physical health. It is estimated that about 7 to 12 percent of all visits to physicians are related to gastrointestinal symptoms and disorders. Therefore, the present study seeked to investigate the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on cognitive-emotional regulation and cognitive flexibility in gastrointestinal patients. The research method was quasi-experimental with pretestposttest design with unbalanced control group and its sample consisted of 30 subjects (15 persons for the experimental group and 15 persons for the control group) who were selected via available sampling method. Then, the members of the experimental group underwent mindfulness-based cognitive therapy for 8 sessions while the control group did not receive any treatment. The tests included the Cognitive-Emotional Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ) and Cognitive Flexibility Questionnaire (CFQ). The results of covariance analysis showed that the difference between the exerimental and control groups in cognitive-emotional regulation were statistically significant (P<0/05). The difference between experimental and control groups in cognitive flexibility was statistically significant (P<0/05). In general, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy had a significant effect on the overall scores of cognitive-emotional regulation and cognitive flexibility of these patients. Manuscript profile

      : Psychology has been taught as "Elmon-Nafs" for more than a thousand years as one of the main branches of philosophy in scientific centers of Iran. In regard to Iranians' acquaintance with modern psychology Ali Akbar Siassi started teaching the first psycho-logy course at the School of Political Science. Siassi's works and services have played a significant role in the development of scientific psychology in Iran, therefore he is known as the founder and the father of modern psychology in Iran. In this qualitative research, using biographical method, his scientific and cultural-political services were examined. The set of Siassi's activities and services can be grouped into two areas: teaching and expan-ding psychology in Iran, and improving the literacy and general culture of the inhabitants of Iran. Teaching the first psychology course, founding the first psychology lab, writing the first textbook of psychology, and founding the Iranian Psychological Association, are exam-ples of the first area, and developing the legal Teacher Training Bill, and passing the Com-pulsory and Free General Education Act are examples of the latter. The combination of these actions has made Siassi a permanent figure in the history of psychology in Iran that is short, and an influential figure in the field of promoting contemporary Iranian culture.

      The aim of this study was to compare the health literacy and the lifestyle of Covid-19 patients admitted to Shahid Firooz-abadi Hospital in Tehran's 20th district and non-covid-19 patients. For this purpose, 60 Covid 19 patients admitted to the hospital were compared to 60 patients with diseases other than Covid-19. To achieve this goal, two questionnaires were submitted to the participants; Health literacy of Iran's Urban Population and Miller-Smith Lifestyle Assessment Ques naire. Data analysis was performed using central tendency analysis (mean), and multivariate analysis of variance. The results showed a significant difference between these two groups on the two variables of health literacy and lifestyle. The results showed that the Covid-19 patients had a higher level of health literacy than non-covid-19 patients. It is possible that covid-19 patients attempt to gather health-related information in order to accelerate the recovery process, to prevent other family members from getting infected, to reduce the side effects of medications and the disease, have led to an increase in health literacy in this group compared to non-covid-19 patients. Also, the unfavorable conditions and the long-term side-effects of Covid-19 have caused them to experience an unpleasant lifestyle compared to non-covid-19 patients. Manuscript profile

      The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of flourishing education on increasing the socio-emotional competencies of students in the first three years of primary school. The research was quasiexperimental with pre-test-post-test de-sign and followup with a control group. The statistical population of this study included all students of the first three years of primary school in Torbat-e Heydarieh in the academic year of 2019-2020. By available sampling method, 50 male students were randomly selected and divided into two groups of 25 (experimental and control). The instrument used in this study was the Emotional - Social Competence Questionnaire (ESCQ). The experimental group underwent closed-loop training during 8 sessions of 90 minutes and 2 sessions per week and the control group remained without any interventions. Data were analyzed using SPSS-24 software and multi-variate analysis of variance. The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of the components of emotional-social competence in the experimental and control groups. There is also a significant difference in the pre-test and post-test results of the experimental group (P<0.01). Based on this, closed loop education based on prosperity can be considered as an effective way to increase the emotional and social competencies of primary school students which can be used in schools.

      Abstract: Today, psychological capital is con-sidered as one of the important organizational intangible assets due to being teachable and in-fluencing occupational variables. The present study has investigated the effectiveness of Ellis intervention model on promotion of psycholo-gical capital of experts working in industrial centers. Statistical population of the present se-mi-experimental research consisted of experts working in Iran Khodro Diesel Company from which a total number of 60 participants were selected using regular random sampling method and then they were assigned to experimental and control groups. After completion of Luthans’ Psychological Capital Questionnaire by both groups, the experimental group received training in 10 two-hour sessions using Ellis rational emo-tive behavioral method. The experiment was im-plemented in two other steps in order to collect post-test data and follow-up. The results of multi-variable variance analysis indicated that the scores of post-test and follow-up in hope, optimism, self-efficacy, and resilience compo-nents were higher in experimental group who had been under Ellis intervention, compared to the control group. The results of univariate tests indicated that hope, optimism, self-effi-cacy, and resilience components were signi-ficant according to descriptive results and it consequently represents the sustainable effects of Ellis intervention in follow-up and increased effectiveness on optimism. Ellis intervention model and method has promoted the level of psychological capital in employees. Manuscript profile

      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to determine the role of early maladaptive sche-mas, social maturity, and emotional maturity in predicting the tendency to vandalism in delinqu-ent teenagers. The sample consisted of 161 de-linquents that had committed vandalism and were selected from among 652 male delinquents residing in correctional and educational centers in Tehran, Guilan, Mazandaran, Ardabil, West Azarbaijan, East Azarbaijan, Golestan, and Kho-rasan provinces. In order to collect data, Nikakh-tar’s Vandalism Questionnaire (NVQ), Young Early Maladaptive Schemas Questionnaire (YEMSQ-SF3), Rao Social Maturity Scale (RSMS), and Singh-Bhargava Emotional Matu- rity Scale (S-BEMS) were used. Results of multiple regressions showed that maladaptive schemas and social/emotional maturity vari-ables significantly predict the changes related to vandalism in delinquent teenagers. These findings indicate that the early maladaptive schemas and social/emotional maturity are effective variables in vandalism among delin-quent teenagers. Manuscript profile

      Abstract: The aim of this study was to inves-tigate the effect of semantic relevance and emotional valence on associative word recogni-tion. To do so, single design with a post-test was used. The population consisted of all students in Semnan University in 2013. Participants were 80 undergraduate students (43 males and 37 females) from the two faculties of psychology and education, and engineering of Semnan Univer-sity, who were chosen via conventionce method. By making use of SuperLab software, partici-pants completed a computer test that offered pairs of words and also Wechsler Memory Scale-Revised (WMS-R). Analysis of covari-ance of repeated measurements was used. Findings indicated the effect of semantic rele-vance and emotional valence on associative words recognition (F=7/64, P<0/001). Whereas pairs of neutral words with semantic relation were presented, the highest recognition was ob- served, pairs of emotional words with no seman-tic relation brought about lowest recognition rate. The results showed that the semantic rela-tionship between pairs of words, compared to the emotional valence of them (positive or ne-gative), had a greater impact on recognition. Manuscript profile

      Appetitive motivation is the drive to eat to obtain pleasure in the absence of hunger. The present study aimed to compare women and men with high and low appetitive motivation in terms of inhibition to food cues. Utilizing a causal-comparative design, fifty-nine healthy and normal weight students with high and low scores in the Power of Food Scale (PFS), who were selected from 1300 students, performed a go/no-go task of food and non-food related pictures to measure inhibition. Factorial ANOVA showed that women with high appetitive moti-vation had higher commission errors in expo-sure to food pictures than non-food pictures. Decreased inhibition in women with high appetitive motivation could be the result of food cues that overstimulate appetitive motivation. - Manuscript profile

      The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and metacognitive therapy (MCT) on reducing anxiety and worry in persons with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). The sample consisted of 25 persons with GAD who were randomly assigned to two groups: CBT and MCT. The MCT manual for anxiety has 10 ses-sions and the CBT manual for anxiety has 9 sessions. In this study the participants received 45-60 minutes individual therapy sessions twice per week. They also completed Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) and Pennsylvania State Worry Questionnaire (PSWQ) pre-test and post-test. The results indicated that metacognitive therapy was more effective than cognitive behavior the-rapy in decreasing anxiety and worry (P<0.05); However, compared to cognitive behavioral the -rapy, metacognitive therapy, was clinically more effective in reducing worry only.

      Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a multidimensional and heterogeneous disorder. Research has shown substantially in the last three decades that child abuse is a pathogenic factor for borderline personality disorder. The main purpose of this study was to predict the borderline personality disorder on the basis of childhood maltreatment and alexithymia, in nonclinical young adults. In this regard, 413 participants were selected using multistage sampling among all students studying in Tehran University. The Borderline Personality Scale (BPS), Child Abuse Self Report Scale (CASRS), and Toronto Alexi-thymia Scale (TAS-20) were used to measure variables. The raw data collected, was analyzed by structural equation modeling. The findings were similar to results of previous studies. The results indicate that theoretical model has a good fitness and childhood traumatic experiences (specially emotional abuse) and alexithymia are good predictors for borderline personality disorder. In addition, results revealed that alexithymia mediated rela-tionship between maltreatment and BPD symptoms Manuscript profile

      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to investigate the mutual relationship between characteristics of schizophrenia (Sc) with theory of mind and alexithymia, as social cognitive as-pects, in a nonclinical group. The research method was descriptive-correlational design of regression prediction. To do so, 200 university students (100 males, 100 females) were selec-ted by multistage cluster sampling from the two universities of Bonab city, East Azarbayjan province in Iran (Payame Noor and University of Bonab). Having any physical or psycho-neurological chronic illnesses was the elimi-nation criterion in the study. To collect data the 78-item scale of MMPI-2 for schizophrenia, Reading Mind from Eyes Test (RMET), and Alexithymia Questionnaire (FTAS-20) were used. Data were analyzed by Pearson's cor-relation test, linear regression analysis, and mul-tiple simultaneus regression analysis. According to the results, the predictive role of theory of mind and alexithymia in characteristics of schi-zophrenia were confirmed. Separately, theory of mind explained 19% and alexithymia explained 57% of the variance of neuro-psychological characteristics of schizophrenia. Studying the combined contribution of theory of mind and alexithymia in schizophrenic characteristics in-dicated that, among the two variables, only the predictive variable affecting features of schizo-phrenia was alexithymia (with beta=0.58).

      Abstract: The aim of the present study was to investigate the role of spiritual intelligence and religious orientation in explaining wisdom construct. Method of the present study was descriptive and correlational. Participants were 120 students of Bu-Ali Sina University, Hame-dan. The measures of Religious Orientation, Spiritual Intelligence Inventory, and three scalese of wisdom including Three-Dimensional Wisdom Scale (3D-WS), Adult Self-Transcendence Inven-tory (ASTI), and Fundamental Values Scale (FVS) were used. Multiple regression and Pear-son’s correlation methods were used to analyze the data. The results showed that in 3D-WS, the combination of components of spiritual intelli-gence and religious orientation explains 20 per-cent of wisdom’s total variance. No other signi-ficant relationships were found between other scales of wisdom and religious orientation; how-ever, they were significantly associated with spiri-tual intelligence. Manuscript profile
