Members of both experimental groups received their treatment in 8 sessions of 1.5 hours; however, the control group did not receive any treatment. Analysis was done through repeated measures analysis of variance & Bonferroni post hoc test.
Results: In the pre-test, the mean and standard deviation of LT for life expectancy was 15.13±3.09 and for psychological well-being 46.73±5.98, in MBCT for life expectancy 14.80±2.39 and for psychological well-being it was 45.87±5.05, and in the control group it was 13.73±2.65 for life expectancy and 46.60±6.55 for psychological well-being (p>0.05). Both treatments compared to the control group, increased life expectancy and psychological well-being in patient after the test (p<0.001). In the follow-up phase, the effect of these two treatments on life expectancy and psychological well-being was lasting (p<0.001). The effect of these two treatments at posttest and follow-up was not different (p>0.05).
Conclusion: LT and MBCT can potentially increase life expectancy and psychological well-being of patients with corona virus.
