Read the â€œAssessing Spirituality â€“ The Relationship between Spirituality and Mental Healthâ€ article found below.
Prompt: In this quantitative study, the authors attempted to investigate the possible relationship between two spirituality variables (religious coping styles and spiritual well-being) and two psychological variables (anxiety and depression). Also studied were differences between those who self-disclosed a spiritual/religious identity and those who did not. Their data analysis concluded that individuals who reported a high use of religious coping styles also reported high levels of spiritual well-being.
- The authors felt a limitation of their study was in defining â€˜spirituality.â€™ State how that can be an obstacle in doing religious counseling.
- The authors state, â€œSpiritual well-being can clearly incorporate God into onesâ€™ life while also incorporating self-reliance.â€ Is this not a seeming contradiction? Give your thoughts on this.
