Effective usage of coping responses assist individuals in overcoming the issues related to physical, psychological, interpersonal, social, and personal conflicts. Also, psychological integrity is a general alignment that conveys the extent to which the individual is feeling confident, stable, and dynamic in order to see internal and external stimuli in a predictable, transparent, and structured way. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of mindfulness-based stress reduction on psychological integrity and coping responses among the patients with asthma. For this purpose, in a quasi experimental study with pre-test, post-test, and control group design, 30 patients with asthma were selected by convenience sampling method and randomly assigned into experimental and control groups (n = 15). The experimental group received eight sessions of mindfulness-based stress reduction treatment (MBSR); whereas, the control group received no intervention. Subjects in both groups were assessed before and after the intervention in order to evaluate their sense of psychological integrity and coping responses. The MANOVA results revealed that MBSR lead to increased sense of psychological integrity, a significant reduction in emotion-focused coping responses, and meaningful increase in problem-focused coping responses. This study showed that MBSR, as a modern intervention, is an effective approach to advance patients’ sense of psychological integrity and problem-focused coping responses.
