Religion and Health:
Exploring the Pivotal Role of Social Relationships in the Church

Neal Krause, Ph.D., Marshall H. Becker Collegiate Professor of Public Health and the Associate Chair, Health Behavior & Health Education.‚ He is also a Senior Research Scientist, Institute of Gerontology.

Dr. Neal Krause™s work focuses on stress and the resources people use to cope with it. Stress is a ubiquitous facet of life. Everyone experiences a major event at some point, such as the death of a loved one or a serious financial problem. Many researchers believe these stressors may have an adverse effect on both physical and mental health. Yet it is also true that most people who are exposed to a stressor do not subsequently experience health problems. This suggests they must have some resources they rely on to cope effectively with stress. Among these resources are supportive social relationships and religion.
