This study aimed to compare the effectiveness of choice theory training and creativity training on the emotion of thought (EoT) and psychological well-being (PWB) in healthcare workers. It was a semi-experimental study with a pre-test-post-test control-group design. The study population consisted of all the healthcare workers of Yasuj City in 2019. Of this population, 45 workers were selected as the sample size using the convenience sampling method and were divided into three experimental and control groups (each with 15 members). Then, the Emotion of Thought and Psychological Well-being questionnaires were administered to the three groups. The experimental group received creativity training and choice theory training in 8 90-minute sessions for two months. In comparison,  the control group received no training during this period. The follow-up phase was implemented after three months. The statistical data were analyzed by the repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA). The findings revealed that choice theory training was more effective for healthcare workers’ PWB than the creativity training. Also, the creativity training method showed a greater effect on the healthcare workers’ EoT than the choice theory training method. Overall, it can be concluded that the two training methods increase the healthcare workers’ PWB and EoT.
