Religious Leadership

Religious leaders play pivotal roles in facilitating the spiritual and mental health of our communities.  The Danielsen Institute has a long history of caring for the formation and well-being of religious leaders, recognizing the important but stressful vocational roles.  We are currently drawing on our Relational Spirituality Model to study several areas related to the formation and well-being of religions leaders with several projects underway:

  • Humility, narcissism, and well-being among religious leaders.
  • Prevalence and dynamics of trauma among religious leaders.
  • Relational spirituality and the formation of religious leaders.
  • Couple dynamics among religious leaders.
