Lifestyle is one of the most important determinants of health. Students need to follow a curriculum on lifestyle factors. Therefore, the present study was conducted with the aim of evaluating the effect of healthy lifestyle psycho-educational training on quality of life (physical and psychological) and social health of students.
Materials & Methods: In the present semi-experimental research with pre-test and post-test design, conducted in 2015-2016, 76 students of Islamic Azad University of Arak, Iran were selected by voluntary sampling method and randomly divided to education (37 students) and control (39 persons) groups that were matched according to age and gender criteria. The research instruments were a researcher-made questionnaire for demographic data, a quality of life questionnaire (SF-36), and Keys social health questionnaire. The lifestyle training program was conducted for a 30-hour course for the education group, and the control group did not receive any interventions. Multivariate analysis of covariance analysis was used to analyze the data.
Findings: The mean post-test scores of the components of quality of life (physical function, physical pain, general health, vitality, social function, emotional role and mental health) was significantly different between 2 groups (p<0.05), but in physical role of quality of life and health, there was no significant difference between 2 groups (p> 0.05).
