Introduction: Sleep disorder seriously affects cognitive and physical functions. The aim of the present research was to investigate the effectiveness of behavioral activation group therapy on ineffective attitudes rate and rumination in women with sleep disorder. Materials and Methods: The research design was a pre-test and post-test with a control group. The research population consisted of all women with insomnia disorder who referred to a psychiatric clinic in Ahvaz, Iran. The sample consisted of 30 individuals who were selected through purposive sampling method and then randomly assigned to two groups of experimental and control. Then, behavioral activation group therapy was performed for 8 sessions (90 minutes per session) for the experimental group. Data was collected using ineffective attitudes and rumination inventory questionnaires. Results: The results showed that after the behavioral activation group therapy, the mean scores of ineffective attitude and rumination were significantly different in the experimental group compared to the control group. Conclusion: Our data indicate that behavioral activation group therapy reduces ineffective attitudes and rumination in people with insomnia disorder.
