Black Christian News: Study Shows Church Size Matters When It Comes to Views on Racial Inequality

July 6, 2015
Congregation size has an impact on how people view the reasons for racial inequality, according to a new study by researchers at Baylor and the University of Southern California. Those who attend very large congregations do not tend to attribute divisions between blacks and whites to discrimination, but to something other than structural failings in society. Kevin Dougherty, Ph.D., and Jerry Z. Park, Ph.D., both associate professors of sociology in Baylor’s College of Arts & Sciences, co-authored the study, which was published in the journal Religions.

July 3, 2015
John Klocek, Ph.D., lecturer and clinical director of the Baylor Psychology Clinic, is quoted in this article about Battle Mountain Sanitarium, a historic VA hospital in Hot Springs, S.D., which has treated veterans from the Civil War to today’s conflicts and could soon close. While Klocek agreed with the VA that there is no proof treatment is better in tranquil environments, "we know that even from just everyday experience that being in an environment that is quieter reduces the amount of stimulation coming in; it helps folks relax and focus on what's at hand." But he added that the access to employment and opportunities to help veterans re-enter society is also crucial. Klocek has studied and worked with veterans for years, including at a VA hospital.
