Aim and Background: Migraine is the most common primary headache. According to the studies, stress plays an important role in the initiation and development of migraine. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) bibliotherapy methods on women with migraine. Methods and Materials: The study population included all females with migraine attending to Specialized Headache Clinic of Baqiyatallah Hospital in Tehran, Iran, from November 2016 to January 2017. 30 of them were selected via purposive sampling and were randomly placed in two groups of intervention and control. The intervention group received medical treatment as usual; in addition followed by a course of 8 sessions of mindfulness-based stress reduction bibliotherapy. The control group received only the medical treatment as usual. Clinical interview for diagnosis of migraine headaches was conducted by a specialist physician using the International Headache Society criteria. The study data were collected via the 21-item Depression Anxiety Stress Scale (DASS-21) and the Migraine Disability Assessment Scale (MIDAS). Findings: There was no significant reduction in the headache severity (P > 0.095). However, the levels of stress (P < 0.001), anxiety (P < 0.001), depression (P < 0.001), and disability (P < 0.001), and the number of days with headache (P < 0.001) significantly reduced. Conclusions: According to the results, the mindfulness-based stress reduction bibliotherapy could be applied as an efficient intervention in women with migraine, especially for improvement of the outpatients’ functions.
