Among the factors causing conflicts between the couple are the subjects and underlying of their thoughts. In other words, when the couple has their own thoughts and special mental patterns, they may face conflicts in their communication with each other. On this basis, the present research was conducted aiming at determining the effectiveness of training Feldman's integrated approach on the increase of mindfulness and decrease of marital conflicts of the couple. The research was an experimental research of pretest-posttest type with a control group. For this purpose, 10 couples who were eligible for the conditions intended by the researcher were selected and they were then placed in two groups, namely test and witness groups. The test group was then influenced by Feldman integrated approach during 8 sessions each for 90-120 minutes. Mindfulness scale (FFMQ) and Marital Conflict Questionnaire (MCQ) were executed as research instruments in both groups during three stages, namely pretest, posttest and follow-up). The findings obtained from data analysis indicated that there is a significant difference between pretest and posttest scores of test and control groups. It means that training Feldman's integrated approach has increased mindfulness and has decreased marital conflicts of the couples and this effect is durable over time. Considering the findings of the present research, it can be concluded that Feldman's integrated approach can be used by couple therapists and family therapists as one of the interventional procedures.
