The study results showed that there are statistically significant differences between the mean scores of experimental and control groups at the pre- and post-test in the compulsive buying scale, significant at (0.005) in favor of the pre- and post-test. There are also statistically significant differences between the mean scores of the experimental group at the pre- and post-test in the compulsive buying scale, significant at (0.005) in favor of the post-test, i.e. the selective advising program decreased the rate of Compulsive Buying Behavior.
