Objective: Psychological wellbeing and ego-resiliency are highly affected in a chronic disease like type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), where psychological interventions are considered as an option. The present study, therefore, aimed to investigate the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) on psychological wellbeing and ego-resiliency of T2DM in Sabzevar, Iran.
Materials and Methods: This experimental pretest-posttest design was conducted on T2DM patients admitted to Diabetes Center in Sabzevar, Iran. The sample included 30 patients, selected by convenient sampling, and randomly assigned into control (n=15) and experimental groups (n=15). Ryff’s Psychological Wellbeing Scale and Klohnen's Ego-resiliency Inventory were used to collect data. CBT was conducted for the experimental group. Statistical analyses were performed in SPSS17 using ANCOVA.
Results: The findings indicated that CBT had considerable impact on psychological wellbeing (and its six components: self-acceptance, personal growth, purpose in life, environmental mastery, autonomy, and positive relations with others), and ego-resiliency, in T2DM (P-value ≤ 0.01).
Conclusion: The application of CBT, in T2DM patients can be an effective, applicable and promising intervention to enhance the psychological wellbeing and ego-resiliency, two highly affected constructs in chronic diseases leading to serious comorbidities for health.
