Aim: The aim of the present study was to compare positive psychotherapy with acceptance and commitment to the empowerment of women with rheumatoid arthritis. Method: The research method was semi-experimental with pre-test and post-test design with the control group.

The experimental groups underwent positive treatment and acceptance and commitment (8 sessions, 90-minutes), but the control group did not receive any treatment. The test was then performed on all three groups. The findings were analyzed with SPSS 24 software in two sections: descriptive and inferential statistics. Results: Results showed that positive treatment and commitment acceptance increased patients' character abilities (P<0.05), Bonfroni's follow-up test showed that positive treatment had a greater effect on character abilities. Conclusion: Based on the obtained results, it can be said that positive psychotherapy and acceptance and commitment increase the ability of the character in women with rheumatoid arthritis and positive treatment is more effective.
