Professional Research Organizations
These organizations are the major North American and international organizations that hold research conferences in psychology or mental well-being and religion/spirituality. There are other fine organizations that define their scope more narrowly, either by specific religion or spirituality or by nationality.
As of July 2009, there are six primary English-language research journals devoted to the psychological and sociological study of religion. Many articles in English are also published in other journals devoted to specific psychological specialties, to related fields such as anthropology or cognitive science, or to specific religions or nationalities.
An extensive collection of resources in the clinically oriented psychology of religion is Michael Nielsen’s web site. Although not exhaustive, it is a good place to start for those new to the field.
Additional information on the science & religion dialog is available through the Metanexus Institute.
