Objective: The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of acceptance and commitment therapy on marital satisfaction and sexual performance in couples experiencing emotional divorce.
Methods: The participants in this research consisted of couples seeking medical assistance in Yazd city. A sample of 30 individuals was selected using an accessible sampling method and divided into two groups: an experimental group and a control group. The experimental group underwent eight treatment sessions based on acceptance and commitment therapy. Data were collected using a questionnaire that measured marital satisfaction and sexual performance.
Results: Analysis of the data using covariance analysis revealed that therapy based on acceptance and commitment had a significant impact on reducing marital dissatisfaction and enhancing sexual performance in couples experiencing emotional divorce.
