The mission of Div. 36

Div. 36 promotes the application of psychological research methods to diverse forms of religion and spirituality.

By Heather Jacobson, PhD

 Div. 36 (Society for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality):

  • promotes the application of psychological research methods and interpretive frameworks to diverse forms of religion and spirituality.
  • encourages the incorporation of the results of such work into clinical and other applied settings.
  • fosters constructive dialogue and interchange between psychological study and practice, on the one hand, and religious perspectives and institutions on the other.

The division is strictly nonsectarian and welcomes the participation of all persons, without regard to personal faith, who view religion as a significant factor in human functioning. The division's quarterly newsletter contains original articles, book reviews, announcements and news of interest to division members.
