SAMPLE COURSE MATERIAL

Religion can play a significant role in helping people to cope with stress or to protect against stress. For many, if not most, when disaster or trauma strikes, it is religion, ritual and faith/spirituality that is embraced as a central means of coping (Bergin, 1983; Gartner et al., 1991; Meichenbaum, 1994). Consider the following examples:

  • A National survey conducted by Schuster et al. (2001) found that after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, 90% of Americans reported that they turned to prayer, religions or some form of spiritual activity with loved ones in an effort to cope;
  • Following Hurricane Katrina, 92% of those who survived and who were evacuated to shelters in Houston said that their faith played an important role in helping them get through (www.kff.org/newsmedia/7401.cfm);
