Background: Patients with cardiovascular disease have difficulty in emotional regulation, and this disability can interfere with their treatment. Metacognition therapy (MCT) is a psychological intervention based on emotional management. The purpose of research is to study theeffectiveness of MCT for dementia cognitive emotion regulation in patients with cardiovascular.
Materials and Methods: The present study was a clinical trial with pre-test, post-test and follow-up. The statistical population included all cardiovascular patients in Khorramabad. Sixty-six patients were randomly assigned into control and intervention (Metacognition therapy) groups. The cognitive-emotional regulation variable was used for data collection by a Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (Garnefski & Kraaij). Repeated Measure ANOVA was used for data analysis.
Results: The findings of the study indicated that Metacognitive therapy was effective in cognitive-emotional regulation (positive refocusing, positive reappraisal, refocus on planning) and not so effective in self-blame, focus on thought/rumination, and catastrophizing.
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the research, Metacognitive therapy effects on cognitive dementia relate to top-down versus bottom-up processing in the brain.
