Abstract:   (265 Views)
Objective: The objective of the current investigation was to compare the efficacy of resilience training and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) in enhancing the emotion self-regulation and self-efficacy among employees of Shiraz oil companies.
Methods: This study employed a semi-experimental design consisting of pre-test and post-test assessments with a control group. The statistical population for this study encompassed all employees of oil companies in Shiraz in 2022. A total of 75 individuals were selected through a convenience sampling method and assigned to three groups (first experimental group: 25 individuals; second experimental group: 25 individuals; control group: 25 individuals). The first experimental group underwent resilience treatment program, while the second experimental group received ACT. The control group did not receive any specific intervention. Data collection involved the utilization of emotional regulation questionnaire (Gratz & Roemer, 2004) and Sherer's General Self-Efficacy Scale (SGSES; 1982).
Results: The findings revealed a significant difference in emotional self-regulation between the control group and the training groups that were based on ACT and resilience. However, there was no significant difference in the impact of the ACT compared to resilience on the emotional self-regulation of the participants. Furthermore, a significant difference was observed in self-efficacy between the control group and the training groups based on ACT and resilience.
Conclusions: Consequently, it can be concluded that both interventions exerted a significant influence on the self-efficacy of participants. Moreover, a noteworthy distinction was found between the ACT and resilience training. In essence, it can be stated that the teaching method based on acceptance and commitment had a greater effect on the self-efficacy of the participants.
