The purpose of the present study was to examine the validity and reliability of the Cognitive Fusion Questionnaire (CFQ) in Iranian university students. 324 university students from Shahid Beheshti University of medical sciences participated in the present study during the winter semester of the 2014- 2015 academic year. Factor analysis by principle component analysis method, convergent validity were conducted to examine the validity of the CFQ. To calculate the reliability of the CFQ, Cronbach alpha and test- retest reliability were used. Results from factor analysis by principle component analysis method yielded one factors that explained 54.89% of the variance.this result is confirmed by AMOS. Support for the convergent and discriminant validity of the CFQ via its positive correlations with the Believability of Anxious Feelings and Thoughts Questionnaire, Acceptance and Action Questionnaire – II, Social Interaction Anxiety Scale, and negative correlations with Social Anxiety - Acceptance and Action Questionnaire, Valued Living Questionnaire And WHOQOL- BREF was obtained. The reliability of the CFQ via calculating Cronbach’s alpha and test- retest coefficients were yielded 0.86 and 0.86, respectively.
