Religion as Cognitive Schema


Journal Article

In this commentary, I report research that confirms McIntosh's contention that religion helps persons adapt to stress—both physical and psychological. The limitations of a general, all inclusive hypothesis about the functional value of religion are noted, however. Both the clinical value and the treatment difficulties of this model are noted. © 1995, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
