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.
