Ways of coping and eudaimonic wellbeing of theists and atheists
Religion has always played a great role in a person’s coping styles and well-being in the present-day scenario of the Indian culture. Factors such as coping and wellbeing therefore have an edge in these excruciating times. Such a research as this has not been done in India context before, combining two factors together which are coping skills and wellbeing of theists and atheists. Participants included 50 people between the age of 18 to 25, they were further divided into two groups of 25 theists and 25 atheists each. Questionnaire for eudaimonic wellbeing (QEWB) and Ways of Coping (WOC) Questionnaire by the Folkman and Lazarus (1984) were used as a tool for assessment. Analysis of responses show that there are significant differences in some areas of WOC and eudaimonic wellbeing remains non-significant.
