The Relationship Between Religion and Psychological Distress in Adolescents
Abstract

The relationship between religion and psychological distress in adolescents was investigated using a comprehensive measure of religion, 3 epidemiological measures of distress, and 2 measures of positive adjustment. Results revealed a significant relationship between religion and psychological distress in adolescents. Statistically significant and clinically meaningful results were found on 3 of the 9 religion scales. Specifically, adolescents low on these scales scored above the reported cutoff score indicative of distress, while those scoring high on the 3 religion scales scored below the reported cutoff score for distress.
