Background and Aims: The relationships with the opposite sex in adolescence can often lead to some implicit or explicit harm, especially for female adolescents. Accordingly, the aim of the present study was to determine the effectiveness of matrix intervention program and harm reduction training on suicidal tendency among female students harmed from their relationship with opposite sex.
Materials and Methods: The research method was semi-experimental and the research design was three groups with two stages (pre-test and post-test). Among 60 female students who were harmed from their relationships with opposite sex in Shahinshahr in Isfahan, in the autumn of 2018, 36 were selected based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria and then randomly assigned into three groups (each group 12 participants). Multi-attitude suicide tendency scale for adolescents was used to measure the dependent variable in the pretest and post-test. The group of matrix intervention program and harm reduction training received 10 sessions of treatment and the control group did not receive any treatment. The data were analyzed running multivariate analysis of covariance and post-hoc Bonferroni test.
Results: The results of multivariate analysis of covariance showed that in the post-test phase after the pretest control there was a significant difference between the matrix intervention group compared with the harm reduction training group and the control group in attraction toward life (P <0.01). Also, there was a significant difference between the matrix intervention group and the harm reduction training group, as compared to the control group, in the repulsion by life (P <0.01). Moreover, there was a significant difference only between the matrix intervention group and the control group in attraction toward death (P <0.01).
Conclusion: According to the results, the matrix intervention program can be used to reduce the suicidal tendency of female students who are harmed from their relationship with the opposite sex.
