Abstract

Introduction: The present study examines the Influence of group stress management skills training on ambiguity tolerance on parentless and poorly parented adolescent girls. Â Materials and Methods: This clinical study is implemented by pretest, post-test design and a control group. Statistical community included all of the parentless and poorly parented adolescent girls that are under the support of Mashhad Welfare Organization. Among them, 30 girls were selected through multiphase cluster sampling. They were divided in two groups randomly: experimental group (15 girls) and control group (15 girls). We used Ahmadpour's Ambiguity Tolerance Questionnaire in order to collect the data. The experimental group attended in 12 sessions of stress management skills training that lasted 100 minutes; while the control group had no training program. The data were analyzed through covariance analysis by SPSS software. Â Results: Our findings showed that group stress management skills training has a significant positive influence on ambiguity tolerance (total score and 5 subscales of 7 subscales) of parentless and poorly parented adolescent girls. The influence of training program on avoidance of aesthetic ambiguity and avoidance of anarchy wasn't statistically significant. Â Conclusion: It seems that group stress management skills training has a significant influence on the ambiguity tolerance of parentless and poorly parented adolescent girls.
