Method :Research method was quantitative and in the quantitative section the RDAS scale was used to assess the quality of marital relationships and the Buss-Perry AQ was utilized to measure aggression in a pre-test-post-test design in the statistical population. Then, from among the qualified women, 15 people were undergone compassion-focused group therapy as the experimental group and 15 people were randomly selected as a control group. The experimental group was treated by compassion-focused group therapy. Afterwards, post-test was performed for both groups (experimental and control). The data obtained from the answers to the questionnaires was analyzed by SPSS 23 software using Multivariate analysis of covariance test.
Result: The results indicated that compassion-focused therapy was effective in aggression and the quality of marital relationships of married women. The results of multivariate analysis of covariance on the scores of aggression components confirmed the effectiveness of compassion-focused therapy training on verbal aggression, physical aggression and anger subscales, but its effectiveness in hostility subscale was not confirmed.
Conclusion:The results of multivariate covariance test on the scores of marital relationship quality components confirmed the effectiveness of compassion-focused therapy training in agreement and satisfaction subscales, but its effectiveness in the subscale of coherence was not confirmed.
