Understanding and exploring spirituality

in an inclusive and non-judgmental manner.
Matters of spirituality, religiosity and secularism are ubiquitous in society, affecting many people in many different ways. Societal expectations of spiritualism run rampantly unchecked; those who are seen as “too religious” are demeaned as zealots, those who are spiritual but not religious are infantilized as “flower children” and those who are secular are seen as untrustworthy or dangerous. We do not agree with these definitions, rather we believe that every form of spiritual belief or disbelief offers strength and resilience.   


We hope to better understand how identity, group affiliation, cultural diversity and mental/physical health outcomes are influenced by the multifaceted and diverse nature of faith in the U.S. and abroad. Our research aims to inform mental health professionals, educators, other researchers and the public in order to increase knowledge, familiarity and effective application.
