The perceived influence of Seventh-day Adventist religious tradition on clergy's ability to achieve balanced psychosocial development
Vaughn K Grant
This project seeks to assess the significant relationship between the Seventh-day Adventist tradition and the first seven crisis stages of Erik Erikson's model of psychosocial development. Participants who report a high score in one of Erikson's stages are expected to report a high score as a result of the influence of religious tradition, for that stage. The Seventh-day Adventist church has its own unique culture, traditions, conservative principles and philosophy that are grounded in the 28 fundamental beliefs of the church. This project sought to find correlations between religious tradition and Erikson's stages.
