Psychology of Religion Journal Coming Soon

In February, the American Psychological Association will launch Psychology of Religion and Spirituality, a new quarterly journal that will publish peer-reviewed articles that scientifically explore the psychological aspects of religion and spirituality. Topics will include the biological foundations of trait and attitude formation, the effects of spirituality and religiousness on well-being, the application of religious and spiritual constructs in psychotherapeutic contexts, the developmental processes associated with spiritual maturation, and the psychopharmacological and neuropsychological bases of spirituality. The journal will be edited by Ralph Piedmont, a professor of pastoral counseling at Loyola College in Maryland and president of the APA's psychology of religion division.

An excellent area of study. For certain Religion is an Ancient Psychological Technology.

In essence religion serves the psychological needs of each individual regardless of faith. A truly brilliant and enduring technology.
