 Introduction: Spinal cord injuries are one of the most harmful injuries caused by secondary complications resulting from these secondary complications that reduce their satisfaction with their lives. Many of these secondary complications can be reduced or prevented by proper self-management.

Initially, demographic and life satisfaction questionnaires (SWLS) were completed by all samples. Then, the intervention group, in addition to receiving routine care in the self-management program, included 4 sessions of two hours. After completing the intervention, telephone follow up was conducted for 12 weeks. Then, one month and three months after the end of the intervention, the life satisfaction questionnaire was completed again by the two groups. Data were analyzed by chi-square, Fisher exact and independent t-test using SPSS software version 16.

However one month after the intervention, there was no significant difference in terms of life satisfaction between the two groups (p=0.146), But three months after the intervention, there was a significant difference between the two groups (p<0.001).
