 Aims and background: Chronic pain is a sensory and psychological experience of discomfort that usually affects the emotional state and quality of life of the individual. The aim of the present study was to compare the effectiveness of group positive psychotherapy and group psychodrama on spiritual attitude, distress tolerance, and quality of life in women with chronic pain. Materials and methods: This research was a quasi-experimental study with pre-test, post-test and followup design with control group. The statistical population included all women with chronic pain visiting Pars Royal Clinic of Tehran, among them, forty-five women were selected by the convenience sampling method, and were divided into three groups of 15. The research tools included Simons & Gaher’s Distress Tolerance Scale, Shahidi & Farajnia’s Spiritual Attitude Scale, and Short Form Quality of Life Questionnaire; and Rashid’s group positive psychotherapy protocol, and psychodrama package were used for interventions. Data were analyzed using ANCOVA. Findings: the results of the study in the post-test confirmed that positive psychotherapy is more effective than psychodrama on spiritual attitude, distress tolerance, and quality of life in women with chronic pain (p<0.01). Conclusion: The results suggest that positive psychotherapy is a more effective intervention for strengthening spiritual attitude and distress tolerance, and finally improving the quality of life of women with chronic pain.
