The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness of unity-oriented psychodrama on MS patients’ anxiety. Subjects included 20 female patients randomly assigned to experiment and control groups. Experiment group participated in 12 sessions of unity-oriented psychodrama, while control group received no intervention. Data was collected by Anxiety Scale, and analyzed using ANOVA with repeated measure. Results showed significant differences between two groups at posttest and follow-up, meaning unity-oriented psychodrama is effective in reducing MS patients’ anxiety by helping them to feel integrated with the universe, give meaning to bitter experiences and reach a new meaning of life and death.
