Background: The present study aims to provide a comparative analysis of studies on Acceptance-Commitment and Cognitive-Behavioral interferences effectiveness on generalized Anxiety disorder.
Materials and Methods: This is a quasi-experimental research. Students at the Islamic Azad University of Toyserkan, Iran, who have been in contact with the counseling office in the educational year 2016-2017, were selected as statistical population. These students, in a diagnostic interview with a psychiatrist, met the DSM5 standards for generalized anxiety disorder and were approved by a trusted psychiatrist. Then, these selected subjects gave average or more score in beck anxiety test and were randomly divided into two groups of 20. After executing interferences for each group, data were analyzed by t-test and covariance.
Results: The findings indicated that the average acceptance and commitment interference was 12.3 (t= 16.01 and p < 0.001) and the average cognitive-behavioral interference was 11.25 (t= 10.60 and p < 0.001) on generalized anxiety disorder. Also, covariance analysis showed that ACT was more effective than CBT and f (0.03) was significant. Therefore, all hypotheses turned out to be approved.
Conclusion: The research demonstrated that both interferences are effective in treating generalized anxiety disorder, although Acceptance and Commitment interference is more effective than Cognitive and Behavioral interference.

Keywords: Acceptance and commitment interference, Cognitive-Behavioral interference, Generalized anxiety disorder
