 Aim and background:Chronic pain is an important public health problem that seriously affects people’s everyday lives. Aggression has been widely observed in patients with chronic pains and several studies have suggested that aggression is highly associated with chronic pain intensity. The aim of the current study was to test the effectiveness of cognitive self-management program in reducing aggression and multidimensional pain symptoms in women with chronic pain. Methods and Materials: The design of this study was quasi-experimental with pretest-posttest design, including control group which 30 women eligible chronic musculoskeletal pain more than three months (with the mean age 36.60 ± 2.26  yr) were selected by available and  Judgmental sampling. Participants had physiological and psychological trauma. Then they were randomly assigned to treatment (n=15) and control group (n=15). Participants completed the Aggression Questionnaire (AQ) and Multidimensional Pain Inventory (MPI) and in two phases of pre-test and post-test. Treatment consisted of eight sessions of cognitive self-management program over eight weeks. Analysis of Covariance was used for analyzing the data. Findings:    The    Results    showed    significant    reductions    of    aggression    (p<0/001)    and    multidimensional    pain    symptoms    (p<0/05)    compared    to    the    control    group. conclusions: These    results    suggest    that    cognitive    self-management    program    is    efficient    and    useful    in    reduction    multidimensional pain symptoms and aggression in women with chronic pain.
