Background: Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that emotions can affect symptoms and related problems. But are cognitive-behavioral-emotional therapy and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy effective on symptoms and related issues? And which treatment is most effective? Aims: The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral-emotional therapy and cognitive-based cognitive therapy on socio-physical anxiety, itching, and severity of psoriasis in psoriasis patients. Method: This study was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test and two-month follow-up with control group. The population consisted of 30 patients referred to dermatology research center of Tehran University of Medical Sciences who were selected by convenience sampling and randomly assigned to control group (5 male and 5 female) and first experimental groups (5 Men and 5 women) and second (5 men and 5 women) were recruited. Tools include Emoji-Cognitive-Behavioral Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies (SDWC) (2006) and Datilio Model (2010) and Kabat's Mind-Awareness Cognitive Therapies. Zain (1990) Hart et al. (1989) Social-Physical Anxiety Scale, Visual Analogue Scale, and Severity and Level Index of Psoriasis Curtis (2009). Data were analyzed using repeated measures ANOVA. Results: Both treatments reduced socio-physical anxiety with greater efficacy of cognitive-based cognitive therapy. Both interventions were equally effective in reducing itching. Emotional-cognitive-behavioral therapy, but not mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, reduced the severity of psoriasis. At the two-month follow-up, changes remained stable over time (P<0/001). Conclusions: These two treatments are useful interventions to reduce socio-physical anxiety and symptoms and severity of disease in psoriasis patients.
