Tools for data collection were cognitive distortions (Salar, 1387) and distress tolerance (Simons and Gaher, 2005) questionnaires, both of which are considered self-report tests. Data were statistically analyzed through multivariate analysis. Results: The F-value calculated on the total score of cognitive distortions at the level of P <0/000 was significant. In other words, the cognitive distortions in the group with low distress tolerance were significantly higher than in the group with high stress tolerance.
