The aim of this study is to investigate psychological flexibility and emotional schemas in patients with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and normal individuals. Our research design is casual-comparative and the sample size is sixty. OCD patients were selected by convenience sampling from psychological and psychiatric centers in Shiraz. The normal and clinical groups were matched for age, education, marital status and gender. Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (Y-BOCS), Emotional Schemas Scale and The Acceptance Action Questionnaire were administered to the participants. Finally, data were analyzed by multivariate analysis of variance and univariate analysis of variance. Our findings suggest that OCD patients show less psychological flexibility compared to the normal subjects (p < 0.001) and have maladaptive emotional schemas. OCD patients show less psychological flexibility compared to the normal subjects and have different emotional schemas.
