Introduction: Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common inflammatory disease of rheumatism.
Aim: The aim of the present study was to compare positive psychotherapy with acceptance and commitment to the empowerment of women with rheumatoid arthritis.
Method: The research method was semi-experimental with pre-test and post-test design with the control group. The statistical population of the study included all women with rheumatoid arthritis in Khorramabad city in 2019. Using the available sampling method, 60 people were selected and randomly divided into three experimental groups 1 (positive treatment) experimental group 2 (acceptance and commitment) and the witness group (20 people in each group) were replaced. Under the same conditions, the pre-test was conducted with a VIA IS questionnaire from all three groups. The experimental groups underwent positive treatment and acceptance and commitment (8 sessions, 90-minutes), but the control group did not receive any treatment. The test was then performed on all three groups. The findings were analyzed with SPSS 24 software in two sections: descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: Results showed that positive treatment and commitment acceptance increased patients' character abilities (P<0.05), Bonfroni's follow-up test showed that positive treatment had a greater effect on character abilities.
Conclusion: Based on the obtained results, it can be said that positive psychotherapy and acceptance and commitment increase the ability of the character in women with rheumatoid arthritis and positive treatment is more effective. Therefore, these treatments can be used along with medical treatment to improve the ability of these patients.
