Abstract

Abstract Background: Schizophrenia is a chronic illness which is one of the major health problems worldwide; therefore, selecting diverse treatment methods congruent with community culture is of particular importance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of religious training on the improvement of schizophrenic inpatients’ quality of life. Materials and Methods: In this interventional study, 62 schizophrenic inpatients were randomly assigned to two groups: Experimental and control. Schizophrenia Quality of Life Scale (SQLS) was administered to both groups. The experimental group went through religious training (prayer and Quran histories) for two months. Then the two groups took the SQLS again, and the data were analyzed through dependent t-test using SPSS software. Results: The results showed that before the intervention, there were not any significant differences between the two groups (P=0.08). However, after the intervention, a significant difference was observed in the mean score in the experimental group (P=0.04), whereas there was not a significant difference in the control group mean score over this period (P= 0.14). Conclusion: The findings of this study showed that religious and spiritual training can be effective in improving schizophrenic patients’ satisfaction with their quality of life
