Foundational
Faith-Based Research

  • Church Attendance and Health

    National studies demonstrated that non-participation in religious activities increased suicide risk by almost 400% (Comstock & Partridge, 1972; Nisbet et al, 2000)

  • Religion and Suicide Prevention

    Religion and spirituality have shown to reduce suicide rates for those suffering from Traumatic Brain Injury (Brenner et al, 2009)

  • Handbook of Religion and Health

    57 of 68 studies (84%) that addressed the link between suicide and religion found that there were lower suicide rates among those more actively involved in faith-based activities (Koenig & Larsen, 2001)

  • Spirituality, Religion and CACREP Standards

    Outside of pastoral counselors and chaplains trained in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE), few clinicians have received formal training to work effectively with spiritually attuned and motivated clients (Burke et al, 1999; Schulte, Skinner & Claiborn, 2002)
