PSYC 202 - Youth Faith Development and Spiritual Formation

(3)
SP. This course examines how faith is formed and developed by studying influential theories of faith formation (e.g., Fowler’s stages of faith, Object-Relations) and the general developmental theories on which these faith formation theories are based. Approximately two weeks are devoted to faith formation in children. The remainder of the course focuses on the development of religious identity and practices during adolescence and early adulthood. Contextual influences examined include family, peers, schools, religious congregations, historical traditions, organized rites of passage, and post-modern culture. Religious identity is viewed as intertwined with gender and ethnic identity. Prerequisite: PSYC 151  or EDUC 202 , or permission of the instructor.
