Abstract/Results: RESULTS:
The objective of this study was the investigation of the relationship between spirituality, magical/paranormal ideation and religious coping in an unselected population of patients with OCD or another anxiety disorder. The sample for this study was recruited in the Department of Anxiety Disorders in the University Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in Hamburg, Germany. Psychometric data have been collected by the Revised Paranormal Belief Scale, Magical Ideation Scale and Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiousness/Spirituality in patients with OCD (n=49), other AD (n=36) and healthy samples (n=35).
The preliminary results showed no significant differences among the three groups with respect to the most factors, as well as no significant differences between the OCD and the anxiety groups in all factors. The only statistical significant difference was found between Healthy and non-Healthy individuals with respect to the factor of negative coping, whereby the healthy samples reached lower scores in negative religious coping than the anxiety and OCD groups.
Our study does not support prior studies, suggesting an important role of these traits in the etiopathogenesis of anxiety and OCD. On the other hand, our study validated prior study results showing a significant correlation between negative religious coping and both anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders. Our results underline a possible major role of negative religious coping in anxiety disorders and support a potential incorporation of R/S aspects in the psychotherapeutic treatment, targeting mainly better cognitive coping strategies for patients.

Religiosity, Magical Ideation and Paranormal Beliefs in Anxiety Disorders and OCD: A cross-sectional study
Publication year: 2012

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22986279
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
The relation between religiosity/spirituality (R/S), personal beliefs, and mental health has been extensively studied. However, concerning anxiety disorders (ADs), empirical evidence is scarce. This study investigated the differences in R/S and magical/paranormal ideation among obsessive-compulsive disorder patients (OCD; n = 49), patients with other ADs (n = 36), and healthy controls (HCs; n = 35). Our results suggest negative religious coping as being the only parameter showing significantly higher scores in OCD and AD participants in comparison with HCs. Negative religious coping reflects negative functional expressions of R/S in stressful situations. Logistic regression also suggested negative religious coping as the strongest predictor of group affiliation to the nonhealthy group. Further results show no significant differences between other R/S, magical, and paranormal ideation traits among groups. This study underlines an important role of negative religious coping in ADs yet does not clearly indicate a specific causality. Religious-sensitive treatment targeting cognitive aspects of negative religious coping are discussed.

Religiosity and personal beliefs in OCD and anxiety disorders
Publication year: 2011

http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0924933811718454
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Background
In the last decades the relationship between religiosity/spirituality (R/S), personal beliefs and mental health has been extensively studied, indicating a significant correlation of these variables. However, the specific relation of R/S to anxiety disorders has been less investigated.
Objective
The objective of this prospective study is the investigation of the relation of R/S, magical ideation (MI) and paranormal beliefs (PB) to anxiety disorders in general and OCD in particular, in order to specifically determine a possible impact of these variables on psychopathology scores. In addition, the relation between R/S, PB and MI can be systematically investigated.
Design & method
Unselected samples with OCD and other anxiety disorders have been equally assessed within the first week after admission with a face-to-face interview including the following instruments: MINI, HAMD, HAMA and Y-BOCS, OCI-R, STAI, Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiosity/Spirituality, Magical Ideation Scale and Revised Paranormal Beliefs Scale. Forty healthy participants with no psychiatric history served as controls.
Results
Groups did not differ in any aspect of R/S, MI, or PB. Almost all scales referring to R/S, PB and MI were positively correlated to each other. The results showed a strong positive correlation between high scores of negative religious coping and high psychopathology scores in depression and anxiety. On the other hand, there was a significant positive correlation between MI scores and initial OCD and anxiety scores.
Conclusion
This study verifies a significant correlation between personal beliefs and psychopathology in OCD and anxiety disorders. Implications for further research are discussed.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Introduction
Religiosity and spirituality are transcultural parameter of human experience with a complex, multidimensional construct. However, research shows religious commitment and practices being not only important for the personal beliefs, but also for physical and mental health. Findings suggest also other personal beliefs, such as magical ideation and paranormal beliefs similarly influencing psychiatric disorders and mental health. However, these factors are far more multidimensional than once thought.
Objectives
The objective of the study is the investigation of the relation of religiosity/spirituality, magical ideation and paranormal beliefs in anxiety disorders and the specification of potential differences in beliefs between OCD and other anxiety disorders.
Methods
Unselected patients with OCD and other anxiety disorders as core diagnosis have been equally assessed within the first week after admission with self-rating tests including the Brief Multidimensional Measure of Religiosity/Spirituality (BMMRS), Magical Ideation Scale (MIS) and Revised Paranormal Beliefs Scale (RPBS).
Results
80 patients have been recruited and classified in three groups: OCD, other anxiety disorders and healthy control group. All groups reached in average not significantly deviating RPBS, MIS and BMMRS total scores. However, the three personal belief scales did show an interesting relation to each other. RPBS score correlated significantly with BMMRS (r = .34, p < .01) and with MIS score (r = .56, p < .01), while MIS total scores have shown a significant relationship with almost every subscale of the BMMRS.
Conclusion
This study verifies a significant positive correlation between paranormal beliefs, overall religiosity and magical ideation.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
OBJECTIVES:
Religion is a complex human universality, affecting many different parameters of human thinking and behaviour, suggested to also play a major role with respect to physical and mental human health. Although the relationship between religiosity/spirituality (R/S) and mental health has been extensively studied in general in the last two decades and underlined by many biological studies, a literature review shows that the relation of anxiety disorders to R/S is less investigated, than in other psychiatric disorders. Nevertheless religion has often been thought to play some role in the genesis of obsessive–compulsive disorder. At last there are many findings supporting the thesis that beside R/S, magical ideation (MI) and paranormal beliefs (PB) can also have an influence on psychiatric disorders and especially anxiety and OCD, while R/S seems to also have a
special relationship to magical ideation and paranormal beliefs. The objective of the study is to investigate the relation of R/S, MI and PB to each other and to anxiety disorders in general and OCD in particular. The primary aim is to determine resilience and risk factors for the pathogenesis and treatment outcome of anxiety and obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
METHODS:
The study sample included unselected inpatient and outpatient patients with OCD and other anxiety disorders, recruited the Department for Anxiety Spectrum Disorders of the Clinic for Psychiatry and Psychotherapy in the University Medical Centre Hamburg-Eppendorf, Germany.
Patients have been equally interviewed and assessed by self-report measures at admission and discharge. All results were compared between two groups and in contrast to a control group of healthy individuals without history of mental illness. Variables of R/S, MI and PB will be analyzed with respect to anxiety and ocd scores, as well as to treatment outcome.
RESULTS:
Preliminary results of the project will be presented.
CONCLUSIONS:
The studied parameters are far more multidimensional as thought so far and their relation to ocd and anxiety disorders is analogically complex but interesting. Plausibility of findings and implications for psychotherapeutical treatment are discussed.
