Abstract

The purpose of this research was to study the effectiveness of acceptance and commitment therapy on reduction of obesity and body image. This was a quasi-experimental study with pretest and post-test and a control group. The population in this study included all patients who referred to the center of weight loss and nutrition clinics in area number 1 of Tehran city. 30 people were chosen among those people who were considered obese based on the MBI index. They were divided into two groups. The experimental group underwent eight sessions of treatment but the control group did not undergo any intervention. The results of data analysis using analysis of covariance indicated that acceptance and commitment therapy is effective on reducing obesity and body image. So we can use this method as an effective way to help people reduce these problems.
