Abstract:   (109 Views)
Marital satisfaction in a family is a basis of other social organization health. The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of the self-differentiation training based on the Bowen Theory to increase marital satisfaction. The research method was semi-experimental and the pretest- posttest design with the control group.  In this intervention, the population of this study was selected by the convenience sampling method among 38 married women that were randomly assigned to experimental (12) and control (12) groups in Tehran in 2018. Differentiation of Self-Inventory (DSI) and Marital Satisfaction Inventory (MSI) were completed by married women. The control group received no training. The intervention included 10 sessions of the self-differentiation training based on the Bowen theory.  Twelve women participated in this semi-experimental project by using convenience sampling as an experimental group and twelve women as a control group. The brief couple-based therapy was taught in 10 sessions based on techniques of Bowen therapy and four components of differentiation. The data was analyzed by SPSS23 software. There was a significant difference between the post-test scores of the experimental and control groups. In addition, training in the DST approach could significantly increase marital satisfaction ((P < 0.01).t= 21.62= df= 22). The results indicated that there was a significant difference between the pretest and post-test scores of the experimental group. Therefore, the training in self-differentiation could significantly increase the self-differentiation of married women. These findings have been used to design intervention programs to improve conflict, adaptation, intimacy and marital satisfaction between couples.
