White Racial Identity Development and Religious Orientation.
Sciarra, Daniel T.; Gushue, George V.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v81 n4 p473-82 Fall 2003
Study examined how the particular dimension of psychosocial development described by racial identity theory may be related to religious motivation (intrinsic versus extrinsic relation) and how religious beliefs are held (quest versus fundamentalism). Found three significant pairs suggesting that higher and more complex racial identity statuses may be positively related to more integrated and flexible forms of religious orientation.
