Abstract:
This study is intended to examine the effectiveness of life skills training program on the reduction of anxiety sensitivity and meta-worry among undergraduate students at Islamic Azad University Science and Research Branch, Tehran, Iran using a semi-experimental research method. Study participants were classified into two groups of experimental and control. There were 30 subjects (15 experiment and 15 control) selected by simple random-assignment sampling. We used the following questionnaires to identify the difference between the groups: Anxiety Sensitivity Index (ASI) and Wells Anxiety Thoughts Inventory (AnTI). For data analysis, SPSS20 was used, and ANCOVA test was applied for the total group. ANCOVA test results showed a significant difference between pre-test and post-test in experimental group for anxiety sensitivity (F=4.41 P≤0.05) and meta-worry (F=33.63 P≤0.05) after intervention. It is concluded that life skills training program has a significant effect on the reduction of anxiety sensitivity and meta-worry among university students. Therefore, researchers can consider the same issues in future research.
