The convenience sampling method was employed to select the veterans. The instruments, including posttraumatic stress disorder checklist military version (PCL-M), subjective well-being scale, spiritual intelligence scale of king, the multidimensional scale of perceived social support (MSPSS) and perceived stress scale were used to collect the required information. The data were analyzed by SPSS 21 software using Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate regression analysis.
Findings: The subjective well-being in the veterans with PTSD showed positive correlations with spiritual intelligence (r=0.91; p<0.01) and perceived social support (r=0.82; p<0.01), while it was negatively correlated with perceived stress (r=-0.63; p<0.051). In total, 76% variance of subjective well-being scores in the veterans with PTSD were predicted by spiritual intelligence, perceived social support and perceived stress (p<0.01). Aaccording to the beta coefficients, spiritual intelligence was the strongest variable to predict the subjective well-being in the veterans with PTSD.
Conclusions: High levels of spiritual intelligence and perceived social support, as well as low level of perceived stress, improve the subjective well-being in the veterans with PTSD.
