religion is a social phenomenon that involves beliefs, practices, and rituals related to higher powers, often exercised within the public arena. The psychology of religion is the study of religion from the human psychological point of view, interested in how religion affects human behaviour and experience. The psychology of religion explores topics such as why people believe in gods, what benefits they derive from their beliefs, how they cope with stress and loss, and how they relate to others who share or differ from their views.
