Background: Research shows that meta-cognitive therapy affects a variety of variables and that female-headed households have difficulty with thought-control strategies, but the question is how does meta-cognitive therapy affect female-headed thinking strategies? Aims: The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of metacognitive therapy on thought control strategies of women head of households in Tehran. Method: This research was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test and post-test with control group. Forty female heads of households were selected from Tehran household heads of households in the year 1977 and were randomly divided into two experimental and control groups. The experimental group received 8 sessions of 90 minutes of Wells (2000) metacognitive therapy. Thought control strategies were measured using the Wells and Davis Thought Control Questionnaire (1994) and the data were analyzed using multivariate covariance. Results: The results of the covariance showed that metacognitive therapy had a significant effect on the increase of thought control strategies and the components of attention turnover, social control and reassessment of Tatir housewives (p≤0/001). Conclusions: Meta-cognitive therapy can be used to improve thought control strategies and its components, such as attention to return, social control, and reassessment of female-headed households.
