The purpose of the present research was to examine the effect of existential group counseling and cognitive-behavioral therapy on anger management in students. In this pre-post test experimental study, the statistical population consisted of all (367) high school students in the Baruq city high school students. Two schools were selected as sample by cluster sampling. Conducting the Sigel Questionnaire (1986), 30 students were selected and assigned to three groups randomly. For one group, eight sessions of existential group counseling and for another, eight sessions of cognitive-behavioral therapy were carried out. The control group received no intervention and MANCOVA and Post hoc Scheffe Test were applied to analyze the data. The MANCOVA showed that there is significant difference between two experimental (existential and cognitive-behavior therapy) groups and the control group. Except external anger, there is significant difference between existential and cognitive- behavior group counseling and the control group in all components of angry situations. However, there is not any significant difference between two experimental groups. Therefore, both existential and cognitive- behavior group counseling decrease the level of anger in students.
