The research tool includes the child health inventory (CSI-4) Parent Form (Gadow & Sprafkin, 1994), social-emotional learning questionnaire (Crane et al., 2009), and neuropsychological questionnaire (Koolidge, 2002). The experimental group was trained in 8 sessions of 120 minutes in group. Data were analyzed by covariance analysis after the end of the sessions.
Results: The results showed that mindfulness-based cognitive therapy is effective on the components of executive functioning, including decision making, organization and lack in inhibition, and also on social-emotional learning components, including organizing task, peer relationships and self-regulation in students with oppositional defiant disorder (p<0/001).
