The current research has been done to investigate the efficacy of group training of dialectical behavior therapy concepts on improvement of emotional recognition strategies and decrease of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Results: Results showed that there's a significant reduction in OCD symptoms (except sexual obsession and check compulsion) of experimental group in comparison with the control group. Moreover, Positive strategies of emotion regulation increase significantly in experimental group than control group.
