Studia Psychologica Vol.55, No.3, p.169-179, 2013

Author: Kevin L. LADD

Abstract: The interrelated processes of finding meaning and making control attributions are examined among cancer patients (N = 168) for whom religion is either a non-central (aschematics, n = 55) or central (schematics, n = 76) aspect in their self definitions. Various quality of life indices, in addition to cognitive and behavioral measures of religiosity, display complex relations to the prediction of the individual’s level of reported experience of finding meaning and control attributions, depending upon schematicity. No single unifying factor is discerned concerning how the two groups experience meaning; initial perceptions of threat appear to be a common theme in relation to how they attribute control. Additionally, aschematics, as opposed to schematics, report less improvement in their relationships with family and friends as well as less confidence in how they have personally coped with the cancer related experience
