Abstract:   (378 Views)
The purpose of this research is to predict the feeling of loneliness of female managers based on couples' communication patterns and interpersonal dependence with the mediator role of spiritual health. The participants were 300 female managers working in the program and budget organization of Tehran (Iran), who were selected by accessible sampling. Research tools included couple communication patterns questionnaire, interpersonal dependence questionnaire, spiritual health questionnaire and feeling of loneliness questionnaire. To examine the hypotheses of the study, structural equation modeling was used in AMOS 24 software. The results showed that there is a significant relationship between communication patterns and feelings of loneliness, between spiritual health and feelings of loneliness and between interpersonal dependence and feeling of loneliness (p<0.001). Accordingly, couples' communication patterns and interpersonal dependence significantly predict the loneliness of female managers. Also, the findings showed that communication patterns and interdependence are indirectly related to feelings of loneliness through spiritual health. Based on the findings, it is suggested that in the treatment of managers' feelings of loneliness, sufficient attention should be paid to couples' communication patterns, interpersonal dependence, and their spiritual health.
