Aims: Due to low psychological well-being level in veterans with the post-traumatic stress disorders, the symptoms are exacerbated in them. The aim of the study was to predict the psychological well-being in the veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders, based on the personality parameters including self-compassion, sense of coherence, and the thought-action fusion.

Instrument & Methods: In the descriptive correlational study, 120 veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders, hospitalized in Isar Psychiatric Hospital in Ardabil, were studied as available subjects in 2016. Data was collected using the psychological well-being questionnaire, self-compassion scale, the sense of coherence scale, and the revised thought-action fusion scale. Data was analyzed by SPSS 17 software using Pearson correlation coefficient test and step-wise regression analysis.

Findings: The psychological well-being in the veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders significantly and positively correlated with the sense of coherence and the self-compassion, while it significantly and negatively correlated with the thought-action fusion (p<0.05). In addition, 63%, 49%, and 67% of variance of psychological well-being scores in the veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders were predicted by the sense of coherence, thought-action fusion, and the self-compassion, respectively (p<0.001).

Conclusion: High sense of coherence and high self-compassion, as well as low thought-action fusion, improve psychological well-being in the veterans with post-traumatic stress disorders.
