The goal of this study was to investigate the effects of group positive psychotherapy on improving the depression and increasing the happiness of the infertile women. To this end, 36 infertile women were divided into two groups of control and intervention, 18 in each group. The intervention group received six weeks of positive psychotherapy, but the control group’s treatment was delayed by six weeks. To gather the data, the Beck depression Inventory II (BDIII) and Oxford happiness Inventory (OHI) were used. The result demonstrated that, the decline of depression was more in the intervention group than the control group. In addition to this finding, the result also showed that the increase of happiness was higher in the intervention group in comparison to the control one. Therefore, it could be deduced that the positive psychotherapy could be used to treat the infertile women’s depression and elevate their happiness.
