Efficacy of metacognitive group therapy in perfectionist adolescents with fear of negative evaluation

Abstract
Perfectionism is associated with negative evaluation, criticism and self-reproach that could engender in limited life styles and thus significantly affect the individual's major decisions in life. The goal of this study was to explore the efficacy of metacognitive group therapy on reducing perfectionism and fear of negative evaluation among students. The current research was a semi-empirical, where the number of 300 students was selected via multistage cluster random sampling method from among male high school students in the city of Eghlid in the academic year of 2010-2011. Then, the number of 24 students who received the highest score in answering Hill Perfectionism Inventory and Brief Fear of Negative Evaluation Scale (BFNE) was chosen as the subjects and was randomly placed in two experimental (12 people) and control groups (12 people). Meanwhile, subjects' scores were considered as pretest scores. The experimental group was placed under metacognitive therapy intervention for eight 1/5 hour sessions, whereas, the people in the control group did not receive any intervention. As the intervention ended a posttest was administered and after two months, both groups were followed up. Data obtained were statistically evaluated by using one way covariance analysis (ANCOVA). The findings revealed that students participating in the metacognitive therapy exposed a significant reduction in scores pertaining to perfectionism and fear of negative evaluation compared to the control group in posttest and follow up stages (p≤0/0005). Hence, it is conclude that metacognitive group therapy will lead to reduced perfectionism and fear of negative evaluation
