Both groups received the standard treatment, while only the experimental group undergoes the CBT program consisting of (16) sessions over 2 months. All of the subjects completed a positive adaption questionnaire before and after the intervention, and 2 months later (follow-up). The required data were collected and analyzed. Results: a statistically significant difference between the two groups in favor of the experimental group in the level of positive adaption. There are statistically significant differences between the grades ranking averages of the experimental group regarding the post and follow-up measurements on the positive adaption scale after 2 months, the p-value < 0.05 in positive-Adaption in posttest and follow-up measurement.
