      I am sorry, but we don’t have a full-text link to provide for this study. You would need to contact the study author. The study is listed on at ResearchGate, so you could submit a request there.

      We try to maintain a database of all research that we find, but because research is often done independently without our knowledge or direct participation, we don’t always have access to anything more than an abstract or summary. It’s quite likely that this article was published in Farsi rather than English, as it is fairly common for journal articles published in other languages to include an English-language abstract, even when the full article is not translated.

    I think you need to clarify that this is not the journal published by the American Psychological Association but an Iranian journal
