Aim and Background: Women, as half of human resources in societies, are an effective factor in advancing the goals of society and the family. Studies show that women are more vulnerable to poverty and discrimination than men. Now, Unattended women are exposed to all kinds of social harms due to excessive responsibility, lack of familiarity with some social skills, lack of access to resources and consequently poor quality of life, as well as loss of network of relationships and responsibilities of dependents. Therefore, the present study was conducted to identify the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy on psychosocial security, happiness and mental health of unattended women.
Methods and Materials: The research design was a quasi-experimental pretest-posttest with a control group. The statistical population of unattended women is covered by the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee in Kalibar city in 1399. From this population, 40 people were selected by purposive sampling and studied. So that 40 women were randomly divided into 2 groups: experimental (20) and control (20). The Maslow (1992) Psychosocial Security Questionnaire, Arhil & Lou (1990) Happiness and Goldberg (2008) Mental Health Questionnaire were used to collect data. Data were analyzed by analysis of covariance.
Findings: The results showed; Acceptance and commitment therapy has an effect on psychosocial security, happiness and mental health of Unattended women and increases psychosocial security and happiness and decreases mental health in Unattended women (lower score indicates higher mental health).
Conclusions: Therefore, according to the research findings, it can be said; Institutions provide the conditions for free psychological interventions, including acceptance and commitment treatment, along with appropriate economic, educational, and cultural support for these families so that Unattended women can have a positive assessment of their social status and have favorable conditions.
Keywords: Women, Psychosocial Security, Happiness, Mental Health - Acceptance and Commitment.
