The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on perceived stress and cognitive avoidance in type 2 diabetic patients.

The statistical population consisted of all women with diabetes referred to Birjand Diabetes Center during the second 6 months of the year 2018. 30 patients were selected by convenience sampling and were randomly divided into experimental and control groups. Research data were collected using the Cohn et al. (1983) 14-item Perceived Stress Scale and Sexton & Douglas (2009) 25-item Cognitive Avoidance Questionnaire. Univariate and multivariate analysis of covariance (ANOVA) was used for data analysis by SPSS software (α = 0.05).
Results: The results showed that there was a significant difference between the mean scores of perceived stress and cognitive avoidance in type 2 diabetic patients (P≤0.001).
