The current research was conducted with the aim of comparing the effectiveness of training of reality and the spirituality on promoting psychological well-being in students. The method of this research was semi-experimental with experimental and control groups. In this study 45 university students were selected by sampling method as sample size and then the participants were randomly divided into three groups (two experimental and one control groups) which each group had 15 participants. A test group received nine 90-minute sessions of group-based reality training; the second group received nine sessions of two-hour spirituality training in group way, but the control group did not receive any intervention. Ryff's Psychological Well-Being Scales was used to collect information. The results showed that spiritual education has a higher effect on the education of reality in promoting the level of psychological well-being in students. Thus, it can be concluded that reality is influential in promoting the psychological well-being of the students and also the spiritual education and reality education significantly affect the level of psychological well-being in students, but spirituality is more effective than reality.
