The experimental group received 12 weekly sessions of integrated group therapy and the control group assembled in a group. At the end of sessions, all cases fulfilled DASS again. The data analyzed through descriptive statistics, t-test and SPSS software. Results:The results showed that the total scores of DASS in the experimental group had a significant decrease compared to the control group (P=0.006). The subscales of anxiety and depression decreased significantly (P=0.001 and P=0.015, respectively), but there was no significant difference in the subscale of stress (P=0.10).
