This study examines the effect of spiritually oriented cognitivebased group counseling on the resilience levels and spiritual well-being of individuals subjected to mobbing. The study used a quasi-experimental design with the control group (each group=11) with a pretest-posttest application. The mean age of the experimental group was 31.01, with a standard deviation of 6.04; the mean age of the control group was 33.09, with a standard deviation of 6.28. Eight sessions lasting 90 minutes were conducted with the experimental group. Cognitive and spiritual intervention to enhance resilience was applied to the experimental group. No intervention was applied to the control group. Measurement tools, Personal Information Form, Adult Resilience Scale, and Spiritual Well-Being Scale, were applied to the participants as pretest and posttest. Data were analyzed using Mann-Whitney U test and Wilcoxon Signed Ranks Test. As a result of the study, it was found that spirituallyoriented cognitive-based group counseling was effective on the resilience levels and spiritual well-being of individuals who were subjected to mobbing. The findings were discussed within the framework of mobbing, resilience, and spirituality literature, and recommendations were presented.
