Using available sampling, 108 of them were selected as samples. For data collection, psychological hardiness (Ahvaz), spiritual wellbeing (Elison), perceived stress (Cohen), and social health scale (Keyes, Shapiro) were used. Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression using SPSS version 18 software.
Results: According to the results, a significant relationship was observed between psychological hardiness (r = 0.59, P <0.05), spiritual wellbeing (r = 0.53, P <0.05) and perceived stress (r = -0.50, P <0.05) with social health in spouses. Also, the results of multiple regression showed that psychological hardiness, spiritual wellbeing and perceived stress can predict the social health of spouses of veterans by 0.54. (P <0.05).
Conclusion: It can be concluded that the psychological hardiness, spiritual wellbeing and perceived stress are included in the variables relevant to social health and they can predict it. Therefore, it is suggested that psychologists and counselors consider the role of psychological hardiness, spiritual wellbeing and perceived stress to promote the level of spouses’ social health.
