Depression and Religion: Realities, Perspectives, and Directions.
Cadwallader, Eva H.
Counseling and Values, v35 n2 p83-92 Jan 1991
Reviews debate between psychologists hostile and friendly to religion regarding whether religion promotes or deters depression from a historical perspective. Claims two modes of religion can be seen as forming a continuum with one pole as life-celebrating, self-affirming religion that deters depression and the other pole as a life-constricting, self-derogating religion that promotes depression.
