This study aimed to determine the Emotional processing in the prediction of adjustment in female students with symptoms of Oppositional Defiant Disorder. In this descriptive-correlational study, the population consisted of all female high school students with symptoms of Oppositional Defiant Disorder in the city of Ardabil. The sample was a group of 180 female high school students with high scores on the Oppositional Defiant Disorder Checklist. Data were collected through the Emotional processing – Short Form, the Adjustment Inventory for School Students and the Oppositional Defiant Disorder Checklist and analyzed via Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis. The results indicated a significant relationship between Emotional processing and the adjustment level of students with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (r=-0.32, p>0.001). Furthermore, the results of multiple regression analysis showed that %7.7 of variances in the students’ adjustment level could be predicted by their Emotional processing indicating the low predictive power of Emotional processing for the determination of the adjustment level of students with Oppositional Defiant Disorder.
