Religion as a resource in physical illness – a literature review

Psychologist Caroline Lind Pedersen from the cancer counseling unit on Bornholm, Denmark, has written a literature review on the subject of religion as a resource when facing physical illness, in connection with her training as a specialist in psychotherapy.

The article touches upon topics such as increasing religiosity during illness, longevity in religious individuals, relation between religiosity and quality of life, among others, and does so in a simple and straightforward manner. I would recommend it for anyone interested in an intelligible yet informative review of the literature on religion as a resource in physical illness.

Anyone interested in reading the article can find it here in danish.
