Η συμβολή της πίστης στο Θεό και της χριστιανικής θρησκείας στον τρόπο που ο άνθρωπος διαχειρίζεται τον σωματικό πόνο (Master thesis)

Βαρσάμη, Ελένη


Background: The relationship between physical pain and Christian faith is the subject of a growing body of research, as many people seem to rely on their faith in God in order to cope with pain. Objectives: To assess the effects of faith in God and religiosity on physical pain. Search strategy: Systematic review based on MEDLINE search (24 June 2007). Selection criteria: All types of studies (apart from reviews) that assessed the relationship between religiosity- spirituality and physical pain. Data collection: The author studied each article and extracted the data. A qualitative synthesis of the data was performed. Main results: 10 studies met the inclusion criteria. Although the results showed that there is an association between religious coping and pain, they did not make it clear what that association is.The parameters measured were not the same in every article, and in particular there was variability in the parameters measured concerning the religious coping in each. Some of them had a positive relationship with pain and some negative. Conclusions: Pain is associated with faith in God and the Christian religion, sometimes in a positive way and sometimes negative, depending on which religious coping method is used each time and which instrument is used to measure it. More research needs to be done in order to determine the exact relationships.
