Hi! My name is Chad Kelland! I am doctoral candidate at the APA accredited American School of Professional Psychology. I am also LDS. I am seeking individuals who self-identify as Latter-Day Saints to participate in an online survey developed to learn more about the individual member’s beliefs and behaviors related to spirituality, religiosity and sexuality. Participation is anonymous, is online, and simply requires 15minutes of your time. By completing the surveys, you become eligible to earn one of three $100 Amazon.com gift cards. This study is concerned with spirituality, religiousness, and sexuality. Previous studies and literature reviews suggest that for some individuals, there exists an antagonistic relationship between their individual spirituality and religions and their own sexuality (including sexual behaviors). Religion (including spirituality) and sexuality often evoke strong emotions within people. Previous studies have found that an individual’s sexuality (including values, beliefs, and behaviors) are often impacted by their religious or spiritual beliefs and visa versa. Research suggests that often individuals do not consider the notion that one could be spiritual and sexual at the same time. What is not fully understood is how sexuality influences religious or spiritual beliefs. It is our hope that the results provided will illustrate how one negotiates their sexuality while attempting to live their religion and maintain a level of spirituality. Furthermore, we hope to capture data that will illustrate how acting against one's values or morals impacts the intrinsic and extrinsic spiritual or religious orientation of an individual. Minimum requirements: be at least 18-years-old and not currently receiving mental health treatment.
