Background: Obsessive-compulsive disorder is one of the most common and disabling psychological disorders. Many studies have investigated the effectiveness of mindfulness and exposure on the improvement of obsessive-compulsive disorder, but the key question is which of the two combinations of exposure, mindfulness, and mindfulness of exposure is most effective on obsessive-compulsive disorder in women? Aims: To compare the effects of exposure, mindfulness and mindfulness-exposure consciousness on combined obsessive-compulsive disorder in Arak women. Method: This was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test with 3-month follow-up and control group. The statistical population consisted of 25-40 year-old women in Shahrak, 64 were purposively selected, 16 in the exposure group (Fua, Yadin & Leicner, 2012), 16 in the consciousness group (Sears, 2015), 16 in the integrated group (16). Strauss et al., 2015) and 16 control groups were randomly assigned. Research instruments include: Yale Brwan Obsessive-Compulsive Scale (Dadfar, Bouhalari, Malekouti, and Bayanzadeh, 2001), Clinical Interview (Shadloo & Shahrivar, 1396), Psychiatrist's Diagnosis and Beck Depression Inventory (Rajabi and Karjouxmaee, 2012). Data analysis was performed using two-way mixed designs test. Results: Mindfulness, exposure and integration methods were significantly effective in reducing obsessive-compulsive symptoms compared to the control group (P<0/05). Exposure and consolidation methods were significantly more effective in improving OCD symptoms than mindfulness and no significant difference was observed between exposure and mindfulness ((P<0/05). Conclusions: Exposure was effective in improving OCD symptoms and symptoms).
