Reinert, Duane F.; Bloomingdale, John R.
Counseling and Values, v43 n3 p211-23 Apr 1999
Presents evidence to support the validity of Genia's (1997) spiritual maturity typology. Participants (N=256) were categorized as spiritually growth-oriented, transitional, dogmatic, or undeveloped. Results indicate that those in the undeveloped and dogmatic groups were more emotionally distressed than those in the growth-oriented group. Also found that traumatized persons experience lower levels of spiritual support. (Contains 44 references and 2 tables.) (Author/GCP)
