    Three Decades of the Polish Psychology of Religion.Adam Anczyk - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (2):182-207.
    Poland, being a post-Communist European country with a tradition of Marxists religious studies in operation till 1989, developed during the Communist Era an original way of connecting psychology of religion with the value-neutral study of religion. It is also a Catholic a country, in which psychology of religion was practiced in a bipolar milieu: religion as a “sensitive” topic was approached from either Marxist-atheist or Catholic religious perspective. Such dualistic divisions should end with the breaking of the Iron Curtain, and (...)

    Sanctification of Marriage, Religious Coping and Marital Adjustment of Iranian Couples.Reza Fallahchai, Maryam Fallahi, Arefeh Moazenjami & Annette Mahoney - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (2):121-134.
    This study examined cross-sectional links of the theistic and non-theistic sanctification of marriage and positive and negative religious coping with marital adjustment for 316 married Muslims from Iran. Perceiving marriage to be a manifestation of God and reflective of sacred qualities as well as engaging in positive and negative religious/spiritual coping strategies each uniquely contributed variance to marital adjustment, after controlling for each other and global indicators of devotion to Islam, and demographic variables. Specifically, theistic sanctification, non-theistic sanctification, and positive (...)

    An Initial Investigation of the Role of Death Concerns in Evaluations of Metaphoric Language About God.Lucas A. Keefer, Faith L. Brown & Thomas G. Rials - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (2):135-160.
    Past research suggests that death pushes some individuals to strongly promote religious worldviews. The current work explores the role of conceptual metaphor in this process. Past research shows that metaphors can provide meaning and certainty, suggesting that death may therefore cause people to be more attracted to epistemically beneficial metaphoric descriptions of God. In three studies, we test this possibility against competing alternatives suggesting that death concerns may cause more selective metaphor preferences. Using both correlational and experimental methods, we find (...)

    Islamic Psychology: Emergence and Current Challenges.Naved Iqbal & Rasjid Skinner - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (1):65-77.
    Traditionally, mainstream psychology mostly presented religion in a negative light. However, recent years have witnessed a growing realization that religion has a substantial role to play in improving physical and mental health. Given the importance of religion, the American Psychological Association has division 36 “Psychology of religion.” But the perspective of mainstream psychology does not acknowledge the spiritual nature of human beings and their connection to God. Islamic psychology is one of the religion-based perspectives which acknowledges it. This perspective has (...)

    PTSD Symptoms in Religious Leaders: Prevalence, Stressors, and Associations with Narcissism.Elizabeth G. Ruffing, Chance A. Bell & Steven J. Sandage - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (1):21-40.
    Religious leaders face numerous mental health challenges, and prior research suggests that some experience symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder due to work-related experiences. This study employed a diverse sample of 274 religious leaders to qualitatively describe the types of work-related experiences they identify as particularly stressful or overwhelming, assess the prevalence of PTSD symptoms associated with these experiences, and test hypothesized associations between PTSD symptoms and narcissism. The study found that the stressful experiences reported typically involved relational conflict, having limited (...)

    Faith Styles and Perceptions of Other Faiths Among Muslims.Amina Hanif Tarar, Syeda Salma Hasan & Barbara Keller - 2021 - Archive for the Psychology of Religion 43 (1):41-64.
    The positive role of religion in reducing prejudice has remained a neglected theme in Psychology of religion, concerning itself mostly with prejudice and fundamentalism. Recently, noting the absence of a positive antithesis to prejudice and fundamentalism, faith development theory presents xenosophia as going beyond mere tolerance to a creative engagement with other religious faiths to develop new insights and broaden one’s own worldview. The current research undertakes a study of Muslim faith contents to get insights into how these beliefs shape (...)

    Religious coping and spiritual struggles were qualitatively analyzed in 15 semi-structured interviews with Norwegian Hodgkin’s disease survivors. We asked, How is religious coping expressed in 15 Norwegian Hodgkin’s disease survivors? The analyses were theory-driven, using religious coping and spiritual struggles theories as explorative tools. Especially we focused on coping processes, coping dynamics, coping styles, and coping activities. The analyses show that religiousness functioned as a positive factor in coping with cancer in 14 of the 15 participants, equally distributed as conservational (...)
