Aims: Veterans face many physical and psychological problems due to exposure to stressful events, which can seriously affect their spiritual well-being. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of religious orientation and perceived social support in predicting spiritual well-being of devotees.
Instrument & Methods: In this descriptive-correlational study, 345 veterans of Rasht City, Iran, were selected by random sampling in 2016. The data collection tool was spiritual well-being, religious orientation, and perceived social support questionnaires. Data analysis was performed by SPSS 18 software using Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression analysis.
Spiritual well-being had significant positive correlations with internal religious orientation (r=0.60) and perceived social support (r=0.78) and a significant negative correlation with external religious orientation (r=-0.65; p<0.01). The two variables of religious orientation and perceived social support in total explained 46% of the variance of spiritual well-being, of which 14% related to internal religious orientation, 7% to external religious orientation, and 25% to perceived social support (p<0.05).
Religious orientation and perceived social support can predict the spiritual well-being of devotees, thus increasing the spiritual well-being of devotees by increasing internal religious orientation and perceived social support.
