Catholic-Schools Adolescents' Religiosity, Prosocial Values, School Attitudes, and Family Satisfaction.
Schludermann, Shirin; Schludermann, Eduard; Huynh, Cam-Loi
This study examined the direct and indirect influences of adolescents' religiosity on selected social-emotional aspects of their development. A total of 369 boys and 372 girls attending 3 Catholic high schools in Winnipeg, Manitoba, completed a questionnaire that addressed family religion, religiosity, prosocial values, school attitudes, family satisfaction, self-esteem, and life satisfaction. The study found that religiosity was strongly correlated with prosocial values, family satisfaction, school attitudes, and life satisfaction. Path analysis indicated that religiosity had strong direct effects on prosocial values, but that the significant correlations of religiosity with school attitudes, family satisfaction, and life satisfaction represented indirect effects. While it was found that data from girls had a very tight fit to the proposed model and data from the total sample fitted the model loosely, data from the boys did not meet the criteria of fitting the model.
