Background: Unlike other hazards,  impersonal work environments, insecurity is one of the dangers of personal nature. Employed females have always been exposed to sexual harassment, but most sexual harassment study focuses on the features of those who commit sexual harassment and less on those who have been sexually abused and their mental health effect. Therefore, the  research was aimed to use a single case model to assess the efficacy of meta-cognitive treatment on psychological disorders in sexual harassment.
Methods: A multi-base multi-drug therapy method on a topic was performed in single-case research. The Coprasmit self-esteem questionnaire, Bart's Impact Scale, Beck Depression Inventory, and Beck's Anxiety Scale, the Weiss and Margaret Impact Assessment Scale, and the Gharnovsky Cognitive Ordering Questionnaire were used to evaluate rehabilitation facilities, pretreatment, post-treatment, and 3-week follow-up.
Results: The findings of this research demonstrated that this therapy decreased impulsiveness, self-efficacy, depression, anxiety, rumination, or mental impotence. The therapy strategy based on the metacognitive model was efficient in treating post-traumatic stress disorder.
Conclusion: The results showed the efficacy of meta-cognitive treatment on sexual harassment, although this research was performed on one individual and without a control group, the research findings suggest that metacognition findings are generalized.
