This study was quasi-experimental research of a single-subject type with a baseline, intervention, and follow-up design. The statistical sample consists of mothers of deaf children. Three mothers who participated in this study were selected using the convenience sampling method from one of the school in Khomeini Shahr, Isfahan. At first, as a baseline, participants had to fill out Parenting Self-Efficacy Scale three times a week (every two days), which indicated relative stability in scores. Then, participants received a resilience program training in 10 sessions. After each session, the subjects were evaluated with the mentioned scale and three weeks later, the same scale was performed three times with an interval of two days in between as a follow-up step. The extracted data were analyzed using visual analysis. The results showed that the resilience program training had a positive and significant effect on parenting self-efficacy in mothers of deaf children . The effect size and the percentage of overlapping and non-overlapping data for parenting self-efficacy were calculated for all participants. Furthermore, there was a significant effect of the intervention on the follow-up situation. According to the research findings, the resilience program training improved parenting self-efficacy in mothers of deaf children.
