Religious Devoutness in College Students: Relations with Emotional Adjustment and Psychological Separation from Parents.
Richards, P. Scott
Journal of Counseling Psychology, v38 n2 p189-96 Apr 1991
Examined religious orientation and mental health in 268 undergraduates. Religiously devout intrinsic and proreligious subjects did not differ from less devout extrinsic and nontraditionally religious students in depression, shame, and existential well-being. Intrinsic and proreligious subjects scored higher on guilt proneness and religious well-being and lower on functional, attitudinal, and emotional separation from parents than nontraditionally religious subjects.
