Chang, Bei-Hung; Noonan, Anne E.; Tennstedt, Sharon L.
Gerontologist, v38 n4 p463-70 Aug 1998
Examines how religious/spiritual coping was related to caregiving and psychological distress among informal caregivers (N=127) to community-residing disabled elders. Caregivers who used religious or spiritual beliefs to cope with caregiving had a better relationship with care recipients, which was associated with lower levels of depression and role submersion.
