In the first stage, Multidimensional Body-Self Relation Questionnaire (MBSRQ) was administered to 226 female students of Shahed University.

Of these 38 subjects, 16 were selected randomly and were randomly allocated to control (8 subjects) and experimental (8 subjects) groups. After 8 sessions of treatment, the MBSRQ was administered to these 16 subjects. The results of Uman Vitni nonparametric test, support the effectiveness of intervention more specifically, negative body image significantly improved for treatment (experimental) group.
