Thus, the present study has been conducted and aimed at predicting emotional self-regulation through religious orientation and spiritual intelligence of the women against whom violence has been used. Method: This study was correlational. The statistical population of the study was the entire female victims of violence in Mashhad who referred to the center of social emergency in 2015. Among these women, 70 individuals were picked using convenience sampling. Instruments included the Emotional Self-regulation Scale, Religious Orientation, and Spiritual Intelligence. In this research, all the Ethical issues were observed and authors declared no conflicts of interest. Results: The findings demonstrate that there is a significant relation between religious orientation on the one hand and spiritual intelligence and emotional self-regulation on the other. Conclusion: The higher the level of spiritual intelligence in individuals, the better emotional self-regulation. In addition, the internal religious orientation has a positive influence on emotional self-regulation. According to the findings, it can be concluded that spirituality and emotional regulation can be important factors in individuals’ adaptation against high-pressure factors, and religion is the predictor of decrease in non-desirable emotional self-regulation in individuals.
