 The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of an anger control training program on resilience, hardiness and general health of school girls.


 This is a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test, follow-up design using control group. The study population consisted of all female students of technical vocational schools in Tehran, Iran (district 13) in 2017. Of these, 60 were selected using a convenience sampling method and randomly divided into two groups of intervention (n=40) and control (n=20) groups. The instruments were State-Trait Anger Expression Inventory-2 (STAXI-2), Connor-Davidson Resilience Scale, Kobasa’s Hardiness Scale, 28-item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28). The anger control training was presented in 12 sessions, one session per week. Collected data were analyzed using repeated measures ANOVA in SPSS v. 24.


 The anger control training program could significantly reduce the amount of anger and increased the levels of resilience, hardiness and general health in the intervention group compared to the control group (P<0.05).


 Psychoeducational interventions such as anger control training can improve the mental health of school girls.
