Abstract

Spiritual struggles (SSs) are distressing spiritual thoughts associated with poorer health outcomes. This study's purpose was to test feasibility, acceptability, and fidelity of an intervention to decrease SS of parents of children with CF. Parents screening positive for SS were enrolled and were randomized to intervention or attention-control condition. Intervention focused on intra-, inter-, and divine SS. Mixed linear modeling examined between-group differences. We present analyses of Nā€‰=ā€‰23, and participants all showed decreased levels of SS. Acceptability was high; feasibility was higher in the intervention arm. GuideSS_CF is acceptable and feasible and warrants development as a potentially efficacious intervention.
