The population of the current research includes all the couples who have visited Golha-Fatemi health center in 2016 because of lack of intimacy in their relationships in order to get professional counseling and psychological helps. After initial screening and based on inclusion-exclusion criteria of the research, 16 couples were selected by available sampling method, and they were assigned into experiment and control groups (8 couples per group). The data were gathered through marital intimacy scale of Walker and Thompson. After taking the pretest from both groups, the brief solution-focused group therapy was offered to the experiment group in seven 2-hour sessions with a step by step method with the sequence of one session per week, but the control group received no intervention. After finishing the therapy sessions, posttest was taken from both groups. The data were analyzed through univariate covariance analysis test (ANCOVA) with SPSS-20. Findings of covariance analysis indicated that brief solution-focused couple therapy has improved marital intimacy in couples of the experiment group in posttest. Counselors and family therapists can use the findings of the current research in their clinical and therapeutic interventions, and use this therapeutic, practical and effective approach for improving marital intimacy.
