People with body dysmorphic disorders always concern about an artificial or excessive deficit and have mental obsession. The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of group schema therapy on reducing body dysmorphic symptoms and early maladaptive schemas in girl students with overweight concerns. For this purpose, during a two-stage sampling method, some students were chosen based on Cluster sampling method. Then, all students were screened using the Killen Weight Concerns Questionnaire (WCS) and 30 students were selected as the second stage of sampling in a simple random sampling and randomly placed in 2 experimental and control groups. During the experiment, obssesive compulsive thoughts and schemas were assessed, and also, 12 sessions of group schema therapy were used. Multivariate analysis of covariance was used to analyze the data. The findings indicated that the two groups have significantly different meanings for body dysmorphic variables, impaired autonomy and performance, impaired limits, and over-vigilance and Inhibition (p< 0.05) disconnection and rejection and directedness (p> 0.05). Group schema therapy has been able to effectively useful in reducing body dysmorphic symptoms in girls with overweight concerns. Also, three domains of early maladaptive schemas (autonomy, limitation, and vigilance) from all five domains have been influenced by group schema therapy, decreased in scores.
