Given the extent of asthma, the Emotional Intelligence Theory provides a new perspective about predicting effective factors for success and primary prevention of mental disorders as well. The main objective of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness of emotional intelligence training on the quality of life in patients with asthma.


Method of the project has been quasi-experimental that 30 asthmatic patients (confirmed by clinical tests) were selected for sampling and divided into two experimental and control groups (each group had 15 persons) randomly. The experimental group received training in emotional intelligence in 10 sessions of 90 minutes, but the control group did not receive this training. The World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL) scales were performed in two stage pre- and post-test for both groups. After collecting, data, were analyzed using SPSS version 22.


The results showed that there was a significant positive correlation between emotional intelligence [EI] and quality of life, and also there was a significant difference between the mean scores of post-test experimental and control groups on measures of physical health and quality of life in asthmatic patients .(P<0.05)


According to the results achieved in this study, emotional intelligence [EI] can be improved quality of life patients suffering from asthma.
