Background: The workplace and family, as the mainstay of life in the current decade, have become Coveid 19 and have been affected by many factors such as conflict, adjustment, stress, and so on. This study aimed to predict work-family conflict based on job stress, self-compassion, and marital adjustment among female teachers in Coveid-19 conditions. Method: The study was descriptive with a correlational design. The statistical population of the study included all female teachers in Taft, from which 250 female teachers were selected as a sample by the available sampling method. The following questionnaires were adapted, Conflict Questionnaire - Carlson Family (2000), Self-Compassion, (2003), Spanier Marital Adjustment (1976), and OSIPOW (1987) Job Stress (1987). Data collected through these three questionnaires were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient, structural equations, and regression with SPSS software version 23. The results: The result revealed that marital adjustment was a negative and significant predictor of work-family conflict, and job stress was a positive and significant predictor of work-family conflict (P <0.001). In addition, between job stress and work-family conflict, there was a positive and significant relationship. The relationship between marital adjustment and work-family conflict was negative and significant (P <0.001). Conclusion: The result indicated that job stress had a significant positive relationship and self-compassion and marital adjustment had a significant negative relationship with work-family conflict. Therefore, it seems necessary to pay attention to such variables to recognize their effects on the family in counseling and psychological centers.
