Project Description

The research team is currently focusing on the impact of religious coping on cyberpornography use among Christian College students. The first study examined religious coping in general, and positive religious coping was related to lower pornography use. Currently, the second is examining religious coping particularly focused on dealing with the problem of cyberpornography. Such specific coping is hypothesized to be even more strongly linked with cyberpornography avoidance.
