The perceived impact of spiritual beliefs on coping with the pressures and stresses of university life: Lindiwe

Lindiwe is a Psychology Honours student at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Pietermaritzburg campus. She interested in training as a Counselling Psychologist. One of my interests is in the role of religion/spirituality in individual and community development. Her creent study focuses on the relationship between stress and coping mechanisms in university students who consider themselves as spiritual, with special reference to the use of spiritual coping mechisms. Intensive interviews, a focus group and a personal diary were used with 6 students to explore their experience of stress and coping mechanisms, in order to understand whether religion is perceived to help or hinder them when dealing with their daily hassles

A very interesting research topic. Just wondering what your results mean for the practicalities of addressing stress among religious students.

A relevant presentation for us as students and also to our parents in terms of understanding what we go through at a University level. I did enjoy the style of presenting.

Very good presentation, well presented. A suggestion maybe for future studies: you could compare those with spiritual beliefs and those who do not believe in anything and how this impacts on the stresses and pressures.

This was quite an interesting relevant, yet different research topic because we take it for granted. Your angle on it has been quite an interesting one. Your topic leaves much room for research. Your calmness and presentation skills kept us attentive. Well done!

Very well presented, sound theory and interesting results. What are the differences between students who are religious and those who are not? Are their coping strategies better or worse?

Well presented, eloquent and well paced. We did a similar study on stress and interestingly your findings are almost similar to our research findings.
