Communication plays a central role in the marriage and effective and efficient communication (marital quality) between husband and wife stands amongst the most important aspects of family. Families with optimal performance are the smallest components that compose a healthy society with low damage. Therefore, in this research, components of structural approach were taught to enhance marital quality in couples referred to counseling clinics of psychology department of Mashhad. The sample included 10 couples (10 women, 10 men) referred to the counseling and psychology clinic of the Department of Educational Sciences, Ferdowsi University who were randomly assigned into two experimental and control groups. Both responded to the marital quality scale (RDAS) in the pre-test and post-test. As a therapy group, structural approach component was taught to the experimental group. The results were analyzed using covariance analysis. Results indicate the significant differences between the effects of structural approach in the marital quality of the experimental group in comparison with the control group. According to the results of the survey, we can devote more attention to the structural approach in couple therapy and family therapy and it could be considered as a potentially useful approach in this area.
