Background and aims: Hospital medical staff are highly susceptible to the SARS-CoV-2 virus, leading to a heightened risk of developing psychological disorders. The primary objective of this study was to explore the impact of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) on the self-efficacy, resilience, mental health, and sleep disorders of medical professionals working in COVID-19 wards.
Methods: The research employed a quasi-experimental design with a pre- post-test structure and a control group. The sample comprised 30 medical staff from Shahid Modares Hospital in Tehran, caring for COVID-19 patients, selected through purposeful and accessible sampling. They were randomly assigned to experimental and control groups. CBT sessions were conducted individually over eight sessions lasting 120 minutes each, held weekly. Data were collected using General Self-Efficacy Questionnaire (GSE-10), Resilience Scale, General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-28), and Insomnia Severity Index (ISI). Data analysis was performed using covariance analysis.
Results: The results indicated that CBT had a significant positive effect on self-efficacy, resilience, and mental health, while it had a significant negative effect on sleep disorders (p<0.001). 
Conclusion: Overall, the findings suggest that CBT can be an effective intervention for addressing psychological issues among medical staff in corona wards. Implementing this therapy could be beneficial in managing the mental well-being of healthcare workers in such high-stress environments.
