Background and Objective: Diabetes is one of the most common chronic illnesses and also the biggest health problem in all countries. The most important strategy for controlling chronic diseases is self-care behaviors. Therefore, it is important for anyone with this problem to be at the centre of control and decision making in the daily treatment of their illness. The aim of this study was to determine the effects of spirituality group therapy on self-care and its dimensions in women with type 2 diabetes.

Materials and Methods: The design of this research was quasi-experimental with pre- and post-test and experimental and control groups. Among women with type 2 diabetes being recorded in health network of Eghlid, 30 subjects were randomly selected and assigned into two groups of experimental and control (15 per group). In the pre-test, Toobert & Glasgow self-care questionnaires (2000) were completed by the participants and blood samples were taken from all the subjects. The intervention group spirituality therapy was performed for 10 90-minute sessions in the experimental group. SPSS software (version 19) was used for data analysis.
Results: Multivariate analysis of covariance (MANCOVA) showed that the effect of the independent variable on the dependent variable was significant (p<0/001) and spirituality therapy affected the self-care diabetes.

Conclusion: According to our results, group spirituality therapy in patients with diabetes could promote the self-care and its dimensions. Therefore, this method could be used to treat diabetes and reduce the physical and psychological consequences.
