Considering self-esteem and life satisfaction as the main mental health elements and in regard to thought, sensation and behavior as three inseparable human functions that have transactional relationships together, this study was carried out with the aim of examining the effectiveness of teaching cognitive methods on self-esteem and life satisfaction of female perfectionist students Method: This is an experimental research. The sample size was 60, chosen from female perfectionist students at the dormitory of the Islamic Azad University of Yazd in 2012. They were randomly assigned into two groups of trial and control.
