The present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) on the self-efficacy and frustration tolerance in parents of physical-motor disabled children. The research had a quasi-experimental method with pre-test and post-test, and a follow-up for experimental and control groups. The statistical population consisted of parents of physical-motor disabled children with records in the Welfare Organization of Pol-e Dokhtar County in 2017. Samples were selected using the convenience sampling method and randomly put into two 16-subject groups namely the experimental and control groups. Training the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program (MBSR) was presented to the experimental group in 8 two-hour sessions per week, but the control group did not receive any training. Both groups were assessed by Dumka's Parenting Self Efficacy Measure (PSAM) and Harrington's Frustration Discomfort Scale (FDS) a week before the first session, a week after the last session, and 30 days later. The results of repeated measures multivariate analysis of variance (RM-MANOVA) indicated that the training program had an effect on the improvement of parenting self-efficacy and frustration tolerance; and the experimental group had a mean higher than the control group at the post-test and follow-up stages (P<0.0001). Findings of the present study provided a clear perspective on the use of new mindfulness treatment in reducing psychological problems and presented a desirable basis for implementing this training program and method in the prevention and investigation of interpersonal problems.
