Background and Objectives: Parents of children with hearing disorders use various coping strategies, including hope. Spiritual attitude can affect the level of hope in individuals. The present study aimed to investigate the relationship between spiritual attitude and hope in parents of children with hearing disorders.
Materials and Methods: The present cross-sectional study was performed on 100 parents of children with hearing disorders referred to welfare centers in Hamedan, Iran, in 2021. The participants were selected by the census method. Data were collected using a demographic survey questionnaire, a Questionnaire of Spiritual Attitude, and the Miller Hope Scale. Moreover, data analysis was performed using SPSS software (version 16) and statistical tests.
Results: The results of the present study indicated that the mean spiritual attitude and hope in parents of children with hearing disorders were 172.76 ± 20.21 and 184.24 ± 54.23, respectively. A direct and significant relationship was observed between spiritual attitude and hope (P<0.001). The spiritual attitude was significantly associated with birth order, history of hearing disorders in other siblings, maternal occupation, and a number of children. Furthermore, the level of hope was significantly associated with birth order, number of children, accompanying parent, economic status of parents, and educational level of the child (P<0.05).
Conclusion: The spiritual attitude and hope in parents of a child with hearing disorder were at a desirable level, and a significant relationship was observed between these factors and some of their demographic characteristics. Therefore, it is recommended that nurses based on parents’ characteristics, take measures to improve the spiritual attitude of parents to strengthen their hope as a successful coping method.
