Abstract



The alarming rate at which married persons divorce and re-marry is so disturbing in the recent time. Quite a number of them are faced with great challenges of psychological exhaustions which is so worrisome not only to the people concerned but the larger society as well. Therefore, the study examined the effectiveness of Integrative Behavioural Couple Therapy and Logotherapy on psychological exhaustion among married persons in Ibadan metropolis, Nigeria. It adopted a quasi-experimental design with the use of pre-test/post-test and control groups. The study comprised 125 married persons (60 males and 65males) in Ibadan metropolis. The reliability coefficient was obtained using Cronbach's co-efficient alpha (0.78). The data collected were carefully analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The findings of the study revealed that there is a significant difference in the post-test scores of psychological exhaustions experienced by the participants due to the experimental conditions (Integrative Behavioural Couple Therapy and Logotherapy). But there is no significant difference in the post test scores of psychological exhaustion experienced by the participants due to gender (p>0.05).  The study recommends Integrative Behavioural Couple Therapy and Logotherapy as effective therapies to reduce psychological exhaustion among married persons.
