This book, the first of a groundbreaking series, provides a solid theoretical and
empirical grounding from the psychology of religion and spirituality to the
emerging field of workplace spirituality. Leading researchers in the psychology
of religion have contributed up-to-date reviews within their areas of expertise to
help guide the emergence of this exciting new discipline.
Each chapter is written with the workplace researcher in mind. Not only is the
relevant literature from the psychology of religion reviewed, but it is also made
relevant to the workplace setting. The religious and spiritual aspects of such
topics as meaning making, emotional resilience, sense of calling, coping with stress, occupational health and
well-being, and leadership, among others are discussed within the context of work life. Surely researchers
interested in workplace spirituality will keep this book, as well as others in the series, within arm's reach for
years to come.
