Introduction: Divorce is among the important factors, which can cause the family circle to disintegrate. It has many consequences on the society and can be the origin of numerous social harms. The aim of the present paper was to evaluate the effectiveness of group logo therapy on life expectancy and resilience among divorced women.
Methods: In this study, a semi-experimental pre-test post-test design with control group was conducted. The statistical population was all the divorced women in Qom City, Iran, and the statistical sample consisted of 30 divorced women who were randomly assigned into experimental (n = 15) and control (n = 15) groups. The experimental group received group logo therapy in eight sessions (each session lasted 90 minutes) twice a week. The data were collected before and after the intervention. The collected data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (average and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (analysis of covariance) methods.
Results: The results showed that group logo therapy was effective on increasing life expectancy and resilience of the divorced women, and the outcome of the data set was statistically significant (P < 0.05).
Conclusions: The results of this study indicate that group logo therapy can be effective in reducing psychological stress and problems of divorced women. Accordingly, group logo therapy is an appropriate way to increase life expectancy and resilience of divorced women. Using this method, mental health professionals can improve the status of divorced women.
