  1. Adolescent Attachment, Christian Youth Workers and Frequency of Bible Study

    Fall 2009, Leadership for Church Ministry — Pages 337-352

    This research considered whether or not the frequency of Bible teaching relates to attachment relationships between teens and their youth-workers. Bible study and attachment were also considered relative to their relationships to adolescent psychosocial adjustment. Teaching teenagers from the Bible coincides with youth-workers cultivating more successful attachment relationships with young people. Those taught most frequently, demonstrated higher levels of attachment relationships. Bible teaching and adolescent attachment to a youth-worker also related to a teenager feeling less lonely.
