Background and Objectives: Death of a child can be the source of many problems for mothers. Therefore, the present study aimed to investigate the effects of the spiritual-religious intervention on complicated grief disorder and the psychological hardiness of mothers suffering from this disorder.
Methods: The present quasi-experimental study was conducted using a pretest-posttest design with a control group. The statistical population consisted of all mothers with complicated grief disorder in 2019 in Karaj, Iran. This study was performed on 28 mothers who were selected through purposive sampling method and were divided randomly into intervention and control groups. The intervention group received spiritual-religious interventions while the control group did not receive any intervention. The data were collected through the inventory of complicated grief (ICG) and personal views survey questionnaire (PVSQ). Moreover, the collected data were analyzed in SPSS software (version 26) using the analysis of covariance.
Results: The results showed that spiritual-religious intervention has a significant effect on the complicated grief disorder (F=31.96, P=0.001) and psychological hardiness (F=39.09, P=0.001).
Conclusion: According to the findings, a spiritual-religious intervention can reduce complicated grief disorder syndrome and increase the psychological hardiness of mothers suffering from this disorder. Therefore, it is suggested to offer spiritual-religious interventions in clinical settings for people with complicated grief disorder.
