Development of the emotional intelligence construct in psychological literature has opened a new array of research in this field .The results of the previously conducted research showed that the emotional intelligence was correlated with several psychosocial factors, and it played a major role in interpersonal problems. The goal of the present study was investigation of the relationship between the emotional intelligence and interpersonal problems. To do so, 140 students of Semnan University were selected through random cluster sampling. Their emotional intelligence and interpersonal problems were assessed by The Bar-On Emotional Quotient Inventory and Inventory of Interpersonal Problems (Barkham, Hardy & Startup, 1994) respectively. The results showed that there is a negative and significant relationship between most of the emotional intelligence components and interpersonal problems. Furthermore, different emotional intelligence components predicted some aspects of interpersonal problems. In sum, the results indicated that the emotional intelligence led to the increase   of mental health and decrease of interpersonal problems and thus improved the quality of social and interpersonal relationships.

The goal of this research was an investigation into the implicit and explicit memory bias against negative emotional information processing in adolescents with high and low trait anxiety. To do so, 2 adolescent groups of twenty with high trait (n=20) and low trait (n=20) were selected from a large pole of adolescents using Spielbergr’s State-Trait Anxiety inventory for Children (STAI-C). Following the two groups were matched in terms of variables including age, sex,and education level, Explicit Memory Test(EMT) and Implicit Memory Test(IMT),completing word stems, were used to assess the subjects. The stimulants, emotional items, included two series of threatening and neutral words in EXP and a set of ambiguous words. The results indicated that there were no significant differences between high trait and low trait anxiety groups in terms of subject sensitivity and bias against threatening and neutral stimulants. However, high trait group had completed words stems more than low trait group in implicit memory test. These results indicated the presence of implicit memory bias in high trait group. Generally, the results of the present research are in accord with other researches and support the principles governing memory bias and trait anxiety.

The aim of this research was to investigate the Factor Structure and Psychometric Properties of the Persian version of State Adult Attachment Scale (SAAS). Using stratified random sampling method, 321 students (148 male and 173 female students) from Shiraz University were selected. Participants completed Persian version of State Adult Attachment Scale (SAAS), revised version of the adult attachment scale (RAAS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI–II) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). The construct validity of the Persian version of State Adult Attachment Scale (SAAS) was assessed via factor analysis and internal correlations. Also, Concurrent validity coefficients of this scale were calculated based on the correlations of this scale with the revised version of the adult attachment scale (RAAS), Beck Depression Inventory (BDI–II) and Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI) scores. Moreover, using Cronbach’s Alpha the reliability of the Persian version of State Adult Attachment Scale (SAAS) was assessed. Principal component analysis with Varimax-rotation showed the three factors including Secure, anxious and avoidant attachments which were in accordance with factor structure of SAAM in major population. Result of internal correlations and correlations with BAI, BDI-II and RASS, revealed good construct and Convergent validity. Finally, reliability of these subscales were reached between 0/72 - 0/84 according to the Cronbach’s Alpha. According to the results of this study, SAAM can be used for the Iranian population in clinical and research fields as a reliable and valid scale.

The aim of the present study was to develop a Persian version of Jackson’s five factor questionnaire and to assess its reliability and validity in the Iranian society.Following the preparation of the Persian version of Jackson’s five factor questionnaire through using double translation technique, it was administrated on 308 subjects (174 males and 134 females). The reliability of questionnaire was assessed via internal consistency, item-rest correlations and test-retest methods. In addition, the validity of the scale was investigated using factor analysis, correlations between subscales and criterion validity methods. Cronbach’s alphas range (0.72 to 0.88), test-retest coefficients (0.64 to 0.78)) and test-retest correlations (0.28 to 0.68) suggested good reliability of the Persian version of Jackson’s five factor questionnaire. Confirmatory and explanatory factor analysis supported the original five factor model of questionnaire. The internal relations between the subscales were appropriate (0.11 to 0.53). Finally, existence of special correlation patterns between subscales of the questionnaire and positive affect, negative affect, behavior inhibition / activation systems scale, Eysenck’s personality dimensions and Barrett’s impulsivity dimensions indicated good validity of the scale.The results of this research showed that the Persian version of Jackson’s five factor questionnaire had suitable factor structure, reliability and validity in the Iranian society.

The objective of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of face to face and internet-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia on Cognitive Emotion Regulation Strategies of individuals with Comorbidity of insomnia and depression. This study employed pretest-posttest and follow-up quasi-experimental designs with two experimental groups and one control group. A convenience sample of 45 university staff and professors who theire score were higher than the cut-off score in PSQT and BDI-II questionnaire was selected by using diagnostic interview based on the DSM-5 criteria for depression and insomnia. We randomly assigned 15 people in to three group. The experimental groups received 6 sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. The results showed that the face to face procedure was more effective in reducing putting into catastrophizing and increasing perspective- taking, refocus on planning, than internet-based one. The two experimental groups had a significant difference in rumination, “positive refocusing”, “blaming others” and “blaming self compared with the control group. Moreover, the three groups were similar in terms of “positive reappraisal” and “acceptance”. According to the findings, both procedure of treatment was effectively improved the cognitive emotion regulation strategies

The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with or without metacognitive techniques and Zolpidem (10 mg) for people with chronic insomnia disorder. After assessing eligibility criteria, six patients included four female and two male entered the study. All patients allocated randomly to three treatments (CBT, CBT+ & Zolpidem 10 mg.) and assessed 6 times by research instruments. Results were analyzed by recovery percent, clinical significant index, effect size and diagnostic recovery. Results of the study showed that during post-treatment and 1-month & 3-months follow-up, patients who received CBT+ have higher rate of recovery in sleep efficiency and sleep quality than other patients. In terms of insomnia severity, CBT & CBT+ have no significant difference but both were superior to patients who received Zolpidem 10 mg. Also, patients who received Zolpidem (10 mg) failure to keep treatment achievements in follow-up. Adding metacognitive techniques to CBT increased its efficacy. Findings of this study could regard as a pilot information about new ways for raising efficacy of cognitive behavioral therapy for chronic insomnia disorder.

Over the years, weight loss motivation has been introduced as an important factor in weight loss and its stability. The purpose of the present study was to investigate psychometric properties of the Motivation for Weight Loss Questionnaire (WLM-Q) among overweight and obese Individuals. In this study, the Persian version of the WLM-Q prepared using back-translation was administrated to 453 individuals referring to diet therapy centres in Tehran. The internal consistency of the Persian version of the WLM-Q was assessed via Cronbach’s alpha. Moreover, the factor structure of the scale was assessed using confirmatory and exploratory factor analysis. The results of Cronbach's alpha for the whole scale was 0.82 and for the three extracted factors of health, appearance in relation to others, and appearance in relation to oneself, were 0.86, 0.85 and 0.74 respectively. The results indicated the desirable internal consistency of the scale and its components. The outcome of confirmatory factor analysis supported the factor structure obtained from exploratory factor analysis and the fit indices demonstrated a good model fit. In general, it can be concluded that the Persian version of the WLM-Q has desirable psychometric properties and is a reliable instrument for research and clinical settings.

The purpose of the present study was to investigate the psychometric properties of the Persian version of the Valuing Questionnaire (VQ) in people who engaged in weight loss or weight loss maintenance. In this descriptive study, 420 men and women were selected through consecutive sampling and respond to the Persian version of the VQ and the Self-compassion Scale (SCS). To assess the validity of the questionnaire, construct validity (exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis) and convergent validity was used. The reliability of the questionnaire was assessed via internal consistency. Exploratory factor analysis of VQ’s items revealed two factors named progress and obstruction, but, at the item level, it was different from the original model of the questionnaire. For two extracted factors, Cronbach’s alphas range was 0.73 to 0.85 suggesting satisfying reliability of the Persian version of the VQ.  Confirmatory factor analysis supported the original two factor model of the questionnaire, and fit indices indicated a good model fit. The convergent validity of the questionnaire was also adequate. The Persian version of the VQ has adequate reliability and validity in Iranian society and is a good self-report for research and clinical settings.
