Title
Toward an Integrative Measure of Health and Well-Being
Abstract

Psychological and theological concepts of the integrative nature of healthy human personality are examined, with particular emphasis on the biblical relationships between integrated personality and shalom, or well-being. The Spiritual Well-Being Scale (SWBS) is suggested as a general indicator of personality integration and resultant well-being. A summary of reported research that has utilized the SWBS from 1982-1990 is presented and related to physical, psychological, relational, and religious well-being. Suggestions are made for additional research and application of the SWBS.
