This study was followed as a quasi-experimental with pretest-posttest-follow up design and with a control group. Samples included 40 nurses in Tabriz in 2019 who scored higher in the marital boredom questionnaire (a standard deviation according to the cutting point) and were randomly assigned to an experimental groups (20 people) and a control group (20 people). The sexual satisfaction, excitement, and resilience questionnaires were completed by subjects in both groups, and schema-based intervention was performed in 12 90-minute sessions, one session per week for the experimental group. After the meetings, the above-mentioned questionnaires were completed again in both groups and finally followed up after three months. The data were analyzed using repeated measurement tests.


Data analysis showed that there was a significant difference between the mean of post-test scores and follow-up of the experimental group compared to that of the pre-test (p<0.01). In addition, the results of repeated measures test showed that the effects of schema therapy were stable over time. However, in the control group, there was no significant difference between pre-test-post-test and follow-up (p> 0.05).
