Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is the most common functional gastrointestinal disorder and is a psychosomatic disorder. This study aimed to determine the effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) on coping styles and gastrointestinal symptoms of IBS patients. This Experimental (pretest-posttest with the control group) study was conducted on 32 patients with IBS based on inclusion and exclusion criteria. They divided randomly assigned into two groups intervention (n = 15) and control (n = 17). ROME III was used for the diagnosis of IBS. coping styles were evaluated by using Lazarus coping styles questionnaire (CSQ). Data analysis was conducted in SPSS software by using student t-test, Mann-Whitney, and covariance. The results showed that the difference between the mean scores of coping styles (emotion-focused & problem-focused) and gastrointestinal  symptoms in the intervention group after the sessions of mindfulness-based cognitive therapy was statistically significant (p <0.01). The results show that mindfulness-based therapy can be effective in reducing and controlling psychological symptoms, enhance well-being and quality of life. Therefore, this therapy as an adjunctive therapy in patients with irritable bowel syndrome is recommended.
