The statistical population included all female patients with type 2 diabetes who had a file in Simorgh Diabetes Clinic, Gilan, using the available and targeted sampling method, the number of 30 patients with diabetes in two experimental (15 people) and control (15 people) groups ) was considered as the sample size. The experimental group received life skills training for 9 sessions and the control group did not receive any treatment. In order to collect information, psychological helplessness questionnaire (Bond, 1995) and psychological capital questionnaire (McGee, 2011) were used. In order to measure the reliability of the questionnaire, Cronbach's alpha coefficient was used and the value of this coefficient was found to be above 0.7 for both questionnaires. Also, in order to measure validity, content validity was used, and for this purpose, the questionnaire was approved by the relevant experts. The analysis of the information obtained from the implementation of questionnaires was done through SPSS software in two descriptive and inferential parts (analysis of covariance). The findings showed that life skills training reduced the psychological helplessness of patients with diabetes. Also, based on the results of the findings, life skills training increased psychological capital and its components in patients with diabetes. Therefore, it seems that life skills training can reduce the psychological helplessness of patients and provide effective techniques to increase psychological capital.
