Assessing coping responses within specific faith traditions: Suffering in silence, stress and depressive symptoms among older Catholics

Publication Abstract

Krause, Neal. 2010. "Assessing coping responses within specific faith traditions: Suffering in silence, stress and depressive symptoms among older Catholics." Mental Health, Religion, and Culture, 13(5): 513-529.

The purpose of this study is empirically evaluate a coping response that is thought to be unique among older Catholics - suffering in silence. Two hypotheses are examined. The first predicts that older Catholics will be more likely than older Protestants to suffer in silence when ongoing economic difficulty is encountered. The second hypothesis specifies that the potentially deleterious effects of financial problems on depressive symptoms will be offset for older adults who prefer to suffer in silence. Data from an ongoing nationwide survey of older people in the United States provide support for both hypotheses.
