Abstract:
Background & Objectives:
Students with a high spiritual health can adapt to the problems in their personal life. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of alexithymia and cognitive failure with spiritual health in male students of Ardabil Payam-e Noor University.
Methods: This descriptive-analytic study was performed on 268 male students of Ardabil Payam-e Noor University selected through multistage multi-cluster random sampling. Data collection tools included questionnaires of alexithymia (20 items), cognitive failure (25 items), and spiritual well-being (20 questions). Data were entered into SPSS version 23 and analyzed using inferential statistics tests, Pearson Correlation Coefficient and Multiple Regression tests.
Results: There was no statistically significant relationship between demographic variables (age, educational level and field, occupation and marital status) and spiritual health among male students. However, alexithymia and cognitive failure showed significant statistical relationships with spiritual well-being. According to multiple regression results, alexithymia and cognitive failure have the potential for predicting spiritual well-being in male students (P <0.05).
Conclusion: Considering the effect of alexithymia and cognitive failure on students’ spiritual health, it is recommended to help students to improve their spiritual health by overcoming alexithymia and cognitive failure.
