Comparison between Effectiveness of Group Hope Training and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) On Hope and Quality of Life among Children with Cancer

Abstract

This study was conducted to determine effectiveness of group hope training and neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) on hope and quality of life among children with cancer. This was a quasi-experimental research with pretest, posttest, and follow-up consisting of control group. Statistical population consisted of male and female children with cancer referring to Amir Kabir Hospital and Cancer Association of Tabasom during 2016; these children were at age range of 7-18 and demanded to participate in group hope training and NLP sessions. Participants who were at least at first grade, maximally secondary school degree, and were under chemical treatment, were selected as sample members. 60 members were selected using convenient sampling method then assigned randomly to three groups of hope training, NLP training, and control. Children's Quality of Life Questionnaire and Snyder's Children's Hope Scale were used as research instruments. Data analysis was done using MANOVA and ANOVA. Findings indicated a significant difference between hope training and NLP one. Both interventions had almost the same effect on quality of life while group hope training had higher effect on dependent variables. Results showed that LNP group training led to increase quality of life and hope predicting 70% and 40% of their variances, respectively. In addition, findings showed effectiveness of group hope training on increase in quality of life and hope and could predict 53% and 84% of their variances, respectively. According to the findings obtained from study, group LNP training and group hope training could increase quality of life and hope.
