Objective: This research aimed at comparing the impact of emotionally focused therapy training (EFT) and short-term self-regulation couple therapy (SRCT) on cognitive emotion regulation and dyadic coping strategies of parents of children with intellectual disabilities. Method: This study was a controlled quasi-experimental research with an applied approach involving a pretest-posttest-follow-up (one month) design. The sample comprised of 41 couples with children with intellectual disabilities randomly assigned to two experimental groups (n=12 in EFT and n=14 in SRCT) and a control group (n=15). Ten sessions of EFT and eight sessions of SRCT (once a week) were provided for experimental groups. Data from the Dyadic Coping Strategies Questionnaire and Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire were analyzed by the complex repeated-measures design test. Results: Results demonstrated that EFT and SRCT led to an increase in the scores of cognitive emotion regulation and caused improvements in dyadic coping strategies in experimental groups, and results were persistent after one month. Upon comparing the two approaches, short-term self-regulation couple therapy indicated greater effectiveness. Conclusion: In light of the roles of cognitive emotion regulation and dyadic coping strategies in couples’ interaction, it is recommended that emotionally focused and self-regulative methods be used in couple therapy to improve dyadic coping strategies and cognitive emotion regulation and reduce marital conflicts.
