Aim and Background: A reason for the higher prevalence of psychological problems in individuals with obesity is their lack of emotional control. The aim of this study was the assessment of the effectiveness of emotion regulation techniques on the psychopathological problems in women with obesity. Methods and Materials: The present clinical trial was conducted through pretest-posttest method and follow-up. From among all women with BMI of over 25 in Isfahan, Iran, in 2015, 24 women were selected through convenience sampling and randomly assigned to two experimental (emotion regulation techniques) and control groups. Data were collected using the Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-90) questionnaire. The collected data was analyzed using ANCOVA in SPSS software. Findings: The results of psychopathology dimensions indicated that the effect of emotion regulation on the reduction of anxiety and obsession was not significant in the posttest stage (P > 0.05), but it was significant in the follow-up stage (P < 0.05). However, emotion regulation had a significant effect on the reduction of depression and somatization in the posttest and follow-up stages (P < 0.05). Conclusions: It can be concluded that emotion regulation education is effective on the improvement of psychopathological symptoms in patients with obesity and it has some important implications in the consideration of emotion regulation group therapy in the reduction of the problems of patients with obesity.
