2042: The Protective Effects of Social Support on Postpartum Depression: Does Emotional Intelligence Matter?; The Lived Experience of Spirituality in Alcoholism Recovery
This research examined the role of emotional intelligence in postpartum depression. It specifically looked at how emotional intelligence in pregnant women correlated with their existing social support and then predicted their levels of depressive symptoms postpartum. Presentation will include research results and implications.
Research on the meaning and role of spirituality for people with alcoholism who seek to recover is limited. Interpretive phenomenology resulted in vivid, narrative anecdotes that convey the universal essences of this phenomenon. Findings may guide discussions about spirituality for those in treatment for alcoholism, model assessment and promotion of spirituality integration in holistic treatment, and inform quantitative instrument development.
