The present study aimed to train the creative problem solving program and determines its effectiveness on reducing behavior problems in gifted elementary students. The research was conducted as a quasi-experimental study with two intervention and control groups with pretest and posttest. The statistical population comprised gifted male primary school students of Mulla Sadra school in Karaj who started school in 2019-2020. The statistical sample consisted of 50 second grade male students who were randomly selected and divided into experimental and control groups. The data collection instrument was Achenbach Child Behavioral Checklist (CBCL). The experimental group received 12 sessions of the program twice a week and their parents received 4 training sessions at the same time. Both groups answered the Child Behavioral Checklist in two phases, a pretest and a posttest. Data analysis was conducted using SPSS-25. The results showed that training a comprehensive creative problem-solving program significantly reduced behavior problems in gifted students (P <0.005). Therefore, training Comprehensive Creative Problem Solving Program can counteract behavior problems by creating a sense of efficiency and self-confidence and laying the foundation for reducing behavior problems.
