Abstract

The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of group cognitive-behavioral training and reality therapy (based on choice theory) on self-esteem of students.  Materials and Methods: The present study is a quasi-experimental with pre-test and post test analysis and control group. The statistical population includes all female students of high schools in Mashhad (educational year 2009-2010). Participants were chosen by random selection method and randomly allocated in three groups. Two groups received cognitive-behavioral and reality therapy training for 2 months (8 sessions of 2 hours), while the control group received no training at all.  Data were collected by Cooper Smith self-esteem questionnaire scale which was given to the test subjects after completion of the trainings. The collected data was put to one way variance analysis, covariance analysis and Scheffeâ��s test.  Results: The study demonstrated that group reality therapy and cognitive-behavioral therapy training had positive effects on the self-esteem improvement in both groups who received interventions (P<0.00001, F=16.06) in comparison to the control group. Actually, both methods were effective in boosting self-esteem.  Conclusion: Both cognitive behavioral and reality therapy methods were found effective in increasing self-esteem Â
