Objective: The present research aimed to assess the effectiveness of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) on the hope of patients with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy.
Methods: In this quasi-experimental study, 30 patients with breast cancer were selected by convenience sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group attended ACT sessions for 8 weeks continuously (each session lasting 45 minutes). Customers/clients in both the experimental and control groups completed Snyder hope scale as pretest and posttest. Analysis of covariance was used as the statistical method.
Results: The findings suggest that ACT is an effective treatment for breast cancer treated patients (P<0.001, F=279.025), including those with low levels of hope.
Conclusion: The results showed that ACT is an effective method in rising hope in women with breast cancer. Thus, psychological interventions can be used to increase the hope of womenwith breast cancer.
