Objectives: This study intended to examine the effectiveness of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on moderating maladaptive schemas and affective control in students suffering from learning disabilities. Methods: This experimental research was conducted using pretest-posttest and a control group. The population included all the female students who were studying in the Koohdasht’s middle schools [academic year: 2012-2013] . The sample included 40 female students suffering from learning disabilities who had been randomly selected out of Koohdasht’s middle school students after identification and a structured clinical interview and they were put into experimental and control groups [20 students each group] . For data collection, Affective Control Scale and Young Schema Questionnaire were used.
Results: The results of multivariate covariance analysis showed that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy has significantly decreased maladaptive schemas, depression, anxiety, and anger in subjects [p<0.001] .
