The statistical population included women with MS who referred to the MS Association of Urmia in 1398, from which a sample of 30 people were selected by available sampling method and randomly divided into two groups. 15 people were replaced. For the experimental group, reality therapy was presented in 8 sessions of 1.5 hours, while the control group did not receive training. Research tools include Reese and Peterson Anxiety Sensitivity Scale, (1985). Andler and Parker Coping Strategies Questionnaire, (1990). Was. In order to analyze the data, univariate analysis of covariance was used at a significance level of 0.05.
Results: The results showed that reality therapy can make significant changes in anxiety sensitivity (p <0.05) and coping strategies (p <0.05) so that the experimental group than the control group more than problem-oriented coping style. And used fewer emotion-coping and avoidance coping styles.
