Spiritual well-being: a predictor of hardiness in patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome.
This study examined the relationship between spiritual well-being and hardiness in a group of 100 subjects who either tested positive for the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV+) or who had diagnoses of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related complex (ARC) or AIDS.
Each subject completed the Spiritual Well-Being Scale, the Personal Views Survey (to measure hardiness), and a Demographic Data Survey.
Analysis of data included Pearson Product-
Moment Correlation Coefficients and multiple regression techniques.
The results demonstrated that there was a significant relationship between spiritual well-being and hardiness (multiple R=.4165; P<.001) as well as between the existential component of spiritual well-being and hardiness (multiple R=.5047; P<.001).
