Objectives: This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of group metacognitive therapy on metacognitive components and resiliency of women with multiple sclerosis. Method: This semi-experimental study was carried out using pretest- posttest design with a control group and a two-step follow-up. From among all the patients with multiple sclerosis referred to the MS Society in Khorasan-e-Razavi in 2015, 30 individuals were selected via convenience sampling method and were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. The experimental group received group metacognitive therapy for eight weeks while the control group attended the usual sessions of the MS Society. Metacognition Questionnaire-30 (MCQ-30) and Connor and Davidson Resiliency Scale (CD-RISC) were used at pretest, posttest and follow-ups. The data were analyzed using analysis of variance with repeated measures. Results: The results indicated that group metacognitive therapy leads to a significant improvement in all metacognitive components (p<0.001) and a significant increase in resiliency (p<0.001). This result was maintained after one- and three-month follow-ups. Conclusion: Group metacognitive therapy can improve metacognitions and resilience of women with multiple sclerosis.
