Description

Spiritual struggles are tensions, strains, and conflicts around sacred matters involving the supernatural, other people, and within oneself. Drawing on research findings, we will make several key points: a) spiritual struggles are commonplace across virtually every orientation to spirituality (including atheism), demographic groups, cultures, and various physical and mental health problems; (b) spiritual struggles have been robustly associated with greater distress and serious mental health and physical health problems; and (c) spiritual struggles have also been associated less consistently with reports of personal growth and transformation. We will then discuss how spiritual struggles can be assessed in the context of healthcare. We conclude by considering several ways healthcare professionals can assist patients experiencing spiritual struggles.
