The aim of this study was to compare the effectiveness of integrated transdiagnostic therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy on hope and pain perception of cancer patients in Isfahan.
Materials and methods: The method of this study was quasi-experimental with a control group. The statistical population of the study was all cancer patients in Isfahan in 1400. Of statistical population, 63 patients were selected by available sampling and randomly assigned to two experimental groups and one control group. The experimental groups were trained with specialized protocols. Data were analyzed by repeated measures analysis of variance and Bonferroni post hoc test.
 Results: Compared to the control group, integrated transdiagnostic and dialectical behavioral therapy resulted in improved hope and pain perception of cancer patients in the post-test (P<0.001), and these results also showed a lasting effect in the follow-up phase. The effect of integrated transdiagnostic and dialectical behavioral therapy on hope and pain perception of patients with cancer was not different in post-test and follow-up stages.
Conclusion: Integrative transdiagnostic and dialectical behavioral therapy are likely to improve hope and pain perception in cancer patients.
