CitationOk, Ü. (2018). How to deal with religious trauma and struggles? Açık Medeniyet, 4, 29.
The theme of my PhD thesis was on cognitive conflict (coined as “religious stress”) experienced by Muslim theology students in their thinking about religion. What I meant by religious conflict covered a bunch of interrelated words including doubt, questioning, confusion, uncertainty, anxiety, even loss of faith. In the end, I assumed that nearly 10% of theology students and over 15% of public people have been experiencing at one point in their life such a set of feelings at a highly intensive level which were creating intellectual discomfort and loss of energy in their lives.
