For this investigation three questionnaires were utilized: a demographics questionnaire assessing age, gender, year in school, athlete status, and sport; the Spiritual Well-Being Scale
(Ellison & Smith, 1991); and the Athletic Coping Skills Inventory (Smith et al.
The study used the Spiritual Well-Being Scale
(SWBS), while Brennan's (2002, 2004) studies used the Spirituality Assessment Scale (Howden, 1992) and the Religious Orientation Scale, which is a measure of religiousness (Allport & Ross, 1967).
Participants were asked to identify their level of religiousness (ranging from "not at all" to "extremely religious") as well as to fill out four questionnaires: the Gender Role Conflict Scale (GRSC); the Masculine Gender Role Stress Scale (MGRS); the Intrinsic-Extrinsic Religious Orientation Scale--I/E-ROS Revised; and the Spiritual Well-Being Scale
While no published research identifies gender effects in the spiritual well-being literature, the results of this study are similar to the findings of Kellums (1995), who found that minor gender effects might be present in the Spiritual Well-Being Scale
More specifically, the research question asked whether there would be a statistically significant positive correlation between the substance abuse counselors' scores on the Spiritual Well-Being Scale
(SWBS); the Inner Harmony, Self-Respect, Wisdom, Honesty, and Loving scales of the Rokeach Value Survey (RVS); and the Time-Competence, Self-Actualizing, Existentiality, and Self-Acceptance scales of the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI).
The Spiritual Well-Being Scale
