BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of emotional regulation skills training on happiness of rescuers of the Red Crescent Organization in Bushehr Province, Iran.
METHODS: This was a semi-experimental research with pretest, posttest, and control group. The statistical population of this study included all rescuers of the Red Crescent Organization of Bushehr Province in 2018. The study tool was the Oxford Happiness Questionnaire (OHQ). Rescuers received emotional regulation training in eight 90-minute sessions, and the control group did not receive any training during this period.
RESULTS: The comparison of pretest and posttest scores of groups showed a significant difference between the scores of rescuers in experimental and control groups in terms of happiness. Thus, emotional regulation training was effective on increasing happiness.
CONCLUSION: The results of this study show that training of emotional regulation skills has important implications for improving the mental health of rescuers.
