The aim of this study was to evaluate effectiveness of training hope in the quality of life of elderly people. This study was an experimental research containing pre-test and post-test with control group. The research tools included adult hope and quality of life scales. The sample consisted of 30 elderly people from charities of Ahvaz being randomly selected and then divided into two experimental and control groups. Before training hope, both groups – experimental and control- were pre-tested. Then, the experimental group received 10 fifty-minute sessions of hope training whereas the control group did not receive any training. Upon completion of the course, immediately the posttests were taken from both groups. The results of multivariate covariance analysis (MANCOVA) and one-way (ANCOVA) showed that training hope significantly increased quality of life and its subscales among the elderly people.
