A single-blind Randomized Controlled Trial will be used to test the efficacy of the OPC on self-efficacy and occupational performance with mothers of children with cerebral palsy. Canadian Occupational Performance Measurement and Sherer general self-efficacy scale will be employed to data collection. The sample size was determined for each group of 15 people. The participants conveniently and according to inclusion and exclusion criteria will be randomized into the groups. Participants in the intervention group will be participated in 10 sessions of OPC. At the end the questionnaires will be completed by both groups.
