The purpose of present study was to investigate the role of experiential avoidance, mindfulness and anxiety sensitivity in emotional disorders symptoms. To this aim, 297 students (age mean 21.6±5.8) were selected by multi-stage cluster sampling from Azad Islamic university students and completed the Acceptance and Action Questionnaire-II (AAQ-II), Anxiety Sensitivity Index-Revised (ASI-R) and Inventory of Depression and Anxiety Symptoms (IDAS). Results showed acceptance is correlated strongly with almost all depression symptoms and all of anxiety symptoms (P>0.01); Moreover mindfulness were correlated moderatly with some of depression and two anxiety symptoms (P>0.01); finally anxiety sensitivity was moderately correlated with some depression and strongly with anxiety symptoms (P>0.01). Regression analysis revealed experiential avoidance has significant role in depression symptoms like Lassitude, Insomnia, Suicidality, Appetite gain, Ill Temper and Well-being, but mindfulness and anxiety sensitivity have weaker role in some symptoms of depression (P>0.01). Also results showed anxiety sensitivity has a dominate role, but experiential avoidance moderate and mindfulness a weak role in anxiety symptoms (P>0.01). Experiential avoidance can be seen as a dominant and common transdiagnostic process in emotional disorders, but anxiety sensitivity is just more influencing process in anxiety symptoms of emotional disorder and mindfulness is a weak transdiagnostic process in emotional disorders.
