Background and Aim: Dyspepsia and digestive disorders are common, debilitating and costly. Little information about the role of stress management treatment of dyspepsia is available. The purpose of this study is to investigate the effectiveness of stress management on cognitive emotion regulation and general health of patients with dyspepsia. Materials and Methods: This research is a pre-test and post-test in an experimental design with a control group. In this study, by random sampling method 30 patients with dyspepsia were selected who referred to digestive Clinics in Tehran city in year 2019 and they were then assigned to experimental and control groups (n=15 for each group). The experimental group received stress management, but the control group did not receive any intervention. The research instrument was cognitive emotion regulation questionnaire of Garnefski & Kraaij and general health questionnaire of Goldberg, & Hillier.The reliability of the instrument in this study in cognitive emotion regulation was 0.70 and in the general health questionnaire was 0.81. Due to the fact that the hypothesis of normality of the data was not confirmed by Shapiro-Wilk test, non-parametric (U-Mann-Whitney and paired Wilcoxon test) methods were used for analysis. . At the error level of 0.05, analysis was performed by using SPSS22. Results: The results showed that in the study of mental health dimensions of physical symptoms (P=0.001), anxiety and insomnia (P=0.034), social dysfunction (P=0.005), depressive symptoms (P=0.028), in the dimensions of cognitive regulation in putting into perspective (P<0.001), positive refocusing (P<0.001); Positive reassessment (P<0.001), acceptance (P<0.001), refocus on planning (P<0.001), self-blame (P<0.001), blame others (P<0.001), focus on thought/rumination and catastrophizing (P<0.001) There was a difference between the experimental group and the control group after treatment. Also, at a significant level of 0.05 in the experimental group, improvement in health status and emotion regulation was observed after the intervention compared to before the intervention.Conclusion: Stress management is a reliable model for improving cognitive emotion regulation and general health of patients with dyspepsia.
