Title
Religious Coping Considered, Part Two: A Narrative Reformulation
Abstract

The second article proposes a narrative reformulation of religious coping theories. Using the multidimensional framework of the first article, a narrative perspective is presented in which the four dimensions mentioned are conceptually connected. In addition, narrative criteria are proposed to discern individualized religious processes. In this narrative theory, existing research and theory are incorporated in a unifying model. The aim of this article is to provide an example of a unifying theory of religious coping and to show the usefulness of a narrative approach.
