After applying Multi-dimensional Body-Self Relationship Questionnaire (MBSRQ), 30 females with scores under 160 and 33 respectively in MBSRQ and Body Areas Satisfaction Scale (BASS) were selected and categorized in two 15-person test and control groups. The subjects in both groups replied to all the items of MBSRQ, Beck Self-concept and Life Quality questionnaires before and after intervention. Data analysis was done after 12 sessions of behavioral-mindfulness using SPSS software 16th version and variance analysis test.
