Abstract:   (5348 Views)
This semi-experimental study with control group and pre test-post test was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of Olson's marriage enrichment group training on marital satisfaction of women whose husbands don't participate in the program. To this purpose using a non- randomly sampling method (accessible sampling) 40 volunteers from women who referred to one of Tehran's municipal health centers were selected and none randomly assigned to two experimental and control groups. As pre test, dependent variable in both groups measured by short form of ENRICH or 40 items form (Bahmani, Asgari, 1385). Members of experimental group participate in 10 training sessions of 90 minutes meeting which were held twice a week while control group members (waiting list) did not participate in any official intervention. Finally both groups measured as post-test. Data were processed by SPSS-16 to calculate statistical and inferential statistics. Analysis of covariance showed that global satisfaction score of experiential group was significantly (P‹ %1) higher than control group. Therefore it can be concluded that Olson's marriage enrichment program as an intervention that originally designed in such a way that both partners must be present simultaneously in training sessions, can increase women's marital satisfaction even when their husbands don't participate in the program
