Results: There was a significant difference in hardiness between the two groups after intervention. Coping strategies did not differ significantly between the two groups before intervention, nor after intervention but there was significant difference regarding cognitive-oriented coping style in terms of scores of pre- and post-test in experimental group (P<0.05). Conclusion: Group CBT developed psychological hardiness and cognitive-oriented coping style in experimental group. Declaration of Interest: None.
