Introduction: This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of group mindfulness-based cognitive therapy on cognitive emotion regulation in patients with type-2 diabetes. Method: This study is of quasi-experimental research type. Its research plan was in the form of two-groups (control and experimental groups) and includes three stages: pre-test, post-test and follow-up. The statistical population included all male and female patients aged between 30 and 50 in Tabriz in 2015, who received the diagnosis of type-2 diabetes. Using available sampling method, a sample of 24 patients was selected and randomly assigned to both experimental and control groups. Individuals in the experimental group received group therapeutic intervention in 8 sessions (60 to 90 minutes), and the control group received no intervention. Before the intervention, at the end of the meetings and at the one-month follow-up, both groups completed the cognitive emotion regulation questionnaire (CERQ). The data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of covariance. Results: The results showed there is a significant difference between the two groups in terms of the use of cognitive emotion regulation strategies at the post-test and follow-up stages. Discussion: Although the drugs and lifestyle changes are the main pillars of modern treatment in diabetes management but the impact of psychological factors on the lives of people with various diseases has been the increase in general health and proper management of diabetes occurs when the psychological component is added to the medication. Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy increases the use of adaptive cognitive emotion regulation strategies as psychosocial issues raised in this disease.
