The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of women's psychological empowerment package on personal growth initiative and marital boredom in divorce-asking women. The research design was quasi-experimental and pre-test-post-test with a control group. The population of the present study was women applying for divorce who referred to the Dispute Resolution Council in 2020. Participants were 30 women who were selected by purposive sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental groups (psychological empowerment, 15 people) and control group (15 people). Data were collected using marital boredom and personal growth initiative questionnaires in pre-test and post-test. Participants in the experimental group received 10 sessions of psychological empowerment training intervention, while participants in the control group did not receive the training program. Multivariate analysis of covariance revealed that psychological empowerment training has increased personal growth initiative and reduced marital boredom in divorce-asking women. Accordingly, the use of this intervention is recommended to couples therapists and family therapists to reduce marital problems.
