The main objectives were: 1) to study the efficiency of Managing Life Crisis Program (MLCP) based on the
oriental approach towards the self-perception of life crisis, 2) to investigate an interaction between psycho-social
characteristics (of neuroticism, self control and social support) and MLCP, and 3) to study the variables
predicting the well-being. Subjects, who scored high on self perception of life crisis, were mothers of sixth
graders. Using simple random sampling, 32 participants were selected as the experimental group and 40 as the
control group. Data was analyzed by MANOVA statistics and multiple regression. The results indicated that
after training the experimental group who trained with MLCP, scored lower on the total perception of life crisis,
emotion oriented coping, and adapting. These scores were statistically significant different at 0.05 level from the
control group. No interaction was observed among psycho-social characteristics and training program towards
the self- perception of life crisis. Finally adapting, emotion oriented coping, and stress predicted the well-being
of participants at 41.1%.
