Background and Objectives: Marital conflicts partly happen due to the psychological disorders of couples, issues related to children, and the long periods of depression, all of which may lead to the failure of relationship and divorce. The present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of schema therapy and emotional self-regulation therapy in the components of marital conflict in women referred to the psychological centers of Ahvaz City.
Methods: It was a quasi-experimental study with a pretest-posttest design and a control group. The research population consisted of all women with marital conflicts referring to the psychological centers of Ahvaz, in 2019. Using convenience sampling, 45 women who were willing to participate in the project were recruited and randomly assigned into two experimental groups (schema therapy and emotional self-regulation therapy) and a control group (n = 15 per group). Data were collected with the Marital Conflict Questionnaire. Besides, the first and second intervention programs consisted of eight 90-minute sessions of schema therapy and eight 90-minute sessions of emotional self-regulation therapy, respectively. The obtained data were analyzed using the multivariate analysis of covariance in SPSS, version 24.0.  
Results: Schema therapy and emotional self-regulation therapy effectively improved the components of marital conflict in women (P < 0.01). Also, the effects of the two interventions on the components of marital conflict did not significantly differ (P > 0.05).
Conclusion: According to the findings, schema therapy and emotional self-regulation therapy are suggested to be employed by psychologists and psychiatric nurses to improve the components of women’s marital conflict.
