For measuring the dependent variables; social anxiety and communication skills questionnaires where applied in the pretest and posttest stages. Three groups of positive directed mindfulness therapy, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, and cognitive-behavioral therapy received twelve sessions of therapy; while the control group did not receive any. Then data were analyzed by analysis of multivariate analysis of covariance.
