Objectives: This research was conducted with the objective of examining the effect of three methods of creativity development (brain storming, forced association and synectics) on creativity development in second grade guidance school students in Shahrekord. Method: The present study was a pretest-posttest experimental design with control group. To measure the dependent variable, namely, creativity, Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (Form B) were used. In this study, 80 second grade guidance school students (40 boys and 40 girls) were randomly selected and divided into four groups (brain storming, forced association, synectics and control group). Results: Results revealed significant differences between pretest and posttest scores of all groups except the control group (brain storming, p<0.05 synectics, p<0.01 forced association, p<0.05). Also, the difference between the methods of creativity development was not significant in other words, none of the creativity methods were superior to the others. However, there was a significant difference between the control group and the three training groups (p<0.001). Conclusion: Regardless of the method, creativity training can lead to an increase in students creativity.
