Objective: The aim of this study was to determine the effects of positive psychology intervention on self-forgiveness and resilience in mothers of children with learning disabilities in Sabzevar, Iran. Method: This study was a controlled quasi-experimental research with a pretest-posttest design. The statistical population consisted of all mothers of children with learning disabilities aging 6 to 12 years and living in Sabzevar during academic year 2016-2017, of whom 34 were selected according to inclusion criteria and assigned to experimental (n=17) and control (n=17) groups through simple randomization. After administering pretests, including  the Self-Forgiveness Scale of Wohl, DeShea, and Wahkinney, and the Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, the experimental group received positive psychology intervention for 8 sessions of 90 minutes, while the control group received no intervention. At the end of the program, posttests were administered to both groups. The data were analyzed using descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistics (analysis of covariance) in SPSS 23. Results: The results showed that positive psychology intervention has a significant effect on self-forgiveness and resilience in mothers of children with learning disabilities in Sabzevar (p£0.001). Conclusion: Positive psychology is an effective intervention program for helping the mothers of children with learning disabilities.
Keywords: Positive psychology, self-forgiveness, resilience, learning disability.
