Research on a Church Related Project

There is a tremendous body of research on people with disabilities and faith communities, but very little that looks specifically at members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. If you skills or interest in this area, consider asking a question that you are interested in.

Take a look at some of the research that has been done here. Here are a few other ideas that may spur an idea of your own:

  • What are the greatest challenges that families who have a member with a disability face in Church?
  • How are the attitudes of Church members different from society in general?
  • How effective are symbols in teaching abstract faith concepts?
  • What are the greatest impacts of old age related disabilities on Church attendance?
  • How importance is involvement with a faith community in supporting a family who have a child with a disability?

There are lots of great ideas and resources in the Journal of Religion, Health and Disability. You may even consider submitting your idea!
