Methods and Materials: This study was a clinical trial. The sample consisted of 45 maladaptive couples who referred to counseling centers in Isfahan. Participants were randomly assigned to three groups of 15, namely the EFCT, NCT and control groups. Participants were assessed using the Marital Conflict Questionnaire (MCQ) in pretest and posttest. Data were analyzed by multivariate analysis of covariance. Findings: Both the NCT and EFCT approaches at posttest significantly improved marital conflict compared to the control group at all levels of marital conflict.
