Metacognition therapy (MCT) is a psychological intervention based on emotional management. The purpose of research is to study theeffectiveness of MCT for dementia cognitive emotion regulation in patients with cardiovascular. Materials and Methods: The present study was a clinical trial with pre-test, post-test and follow-up. The statistical population included all cardiovascular patients in Khorramabad. Sixty-six patients were randomly assigned into control and intervention (Metacognition therapy) groups. The cognitive-emotional regulation variable was used for data collection by a Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (Garnefski & Kraaij). Repeated Measure ANOVA was used for data analysis. Results: The findings of the study indicated that Metacognitive therapy was effective in cognitive-emotional regulation (positive refocusing, positive reappraisal, refocus on planning) and not so effective in self-blame, focus on thought/rumination, and catastrophizing. Conclusion: Based on the findings of the research, Metacognitive therapy effects on cognitive dementia relate to top-down versus bottom-up processing in the brain. KeyWords: Meta cognitive therapy, Cognitive emotional regulation, Top-down, Bottom-up processing, Cardiovascular disease.
