O knihe

Revision with unchanged content. Researchers have begun to examine the theory that religion may help bereaved individuals provide meaning (or an explanation) to an otherwise inconceivable event. Recent work has spawned a growing understanding that bereavement forces individuals to restructure and rebuild previously held assumptions about the self and the world. This book examines the inter-relationship of religious coping, meaning reconstruction, and shattered assumptions by reviewing these three domains. Definitions surrounding "religious coping" and "meaning reconstruction" are clarified, and theoretical constructs are refined by exploring their relationships. This book presents a study which examined mediator-moderator effects of positive and negative religious coping on relationships between grief intensity and world assumptions in mothers bereaved by the death of a child (by homicide, illness, or accident). Results suggest that the negative associations of grief with world assumptions may be, in part, offset when grief is processed through positive religious coping and enhanced when grief is processed through negative religious coping. Suggestions for future research are discussed, including methodological and conceptual considerations. The need to find meaning in the universe is as real as the need for trust and love, for relations with other human beings. Margaret Mead, Twentieth Century Faith (1972)
