Description

Quick video inspired by Rob His video here: http://youtu.be/WcuGH-zhtKw. His video goes over a few things (such as the APA's statement on religion and discrimination). I gloss over some information on the noted symptoms that anti-theists generally assign to religion. Audio gets messed up left and right. I got a new microphone and it's very finicky on what it decides to pick up depending on where it is. Recommended reading (Not necessarily sources used in this video, I don't know if these are free): If you're interested in psychological perspectives on religion and mental health: Corrigan, P., McCorkle, B., Schell, B., Kidder, K. (2003). Religion and spirituality in the lives of people with serious mental illness. Community Mental Health Journal, 39(6), 487-499. Scott, S., Garver, S., Richards, J., & Hathaway, W. L. (2003). Religious issues in diagnosis: The v-code and beyond. Mental Health, Religion, and Culture, 6(2), 161-172. American Psychological Association resolution on religious, religion-based, and/or religion-derived prejudice (In robs video): http://www.apa.org/about/policy/religious-discrimination.pdf Pargament, K. I., Lomax, J. W. (2013). Understanding and addressing religion among people with mental illness. World Psychiatry, 12(1), 26-32 All are very easy reads. If you're interested in neurological functioning in someone during religious behaviors and the similarities seen in disorders read "The role of the extrapersonal brain systems in religious activity" by Fred H. Previc in "Consciousness and Cognition". I think it is in a 2006 issue. I don't have the citation for it because I got my copy when the article was in press. It is long but not very difficult to understand, though it does get into neurological anatomy, which can be kind of a handful. Side note: I put in recommended reading on the subject and forgot actual sources because I'm a derp, fixt now. Sources: Siddle, R., Haddock, G., Tarrier, N., & Faragher, E. B. (2002). The validation of a religiosity measure of individuals with schizophrenia. Mental Health, Religion, and Culture, 5(3), 267-284. Smith, L., Riley, S., & Peters, E. R. (2009). Schizotypy, delusional ideation, and well-being in an american new religious movement population. Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy, 16, 479-484. The brain imaging stuff was included in one of my undergrad psychopathology books, but I don't remember which one and I don't have most of my library at my apartment. If you really want the citation for it lemme know and I'll look for it next time I am at my parents' house.
