The present research aims to study the effectiveness of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) on bereaved students’
hope. This is an applied research of quasi-experimental type and pretest and posttest design with control group. We
selected 30 bereaved university students using stratified sampling method. We used Schneider Hope Questionnaire
as the pretest-posttest in the research and analyzed using the statistical method of covariance analysis. The data
analysis results indicate that cognitive-behavioral therapy increases bereaved students’ hope and there is a
significant difference between the two groups. The results of this study show that cognitive-behavioral group
therapy influences hope and increases bereaved students’ hope by helping them in their emotional discharge and
acceptance of death.

Keywords: cognitive-behavioral therapy, hope, university students
