Creation of an Objective Measure of God Images in Children
by Gilliam, Heather D., Psy.D., Regent University, 2013, 112; 3536185
Abstract (Summary)

The current study was conducted to facilitate the development and pilot testing of an objective measure of God images (GI) in children ages 8-12. Developmentally appropriate items were developed based on literature on GI in children and current adult measures, as well as the potential influence of parenting on GI. Following administration to a sample of 79 children, a principle components analysis with varimax rotation was conducted. The components that emerged reflected trust, value, and acceptance. The implications and recommendations for future research related to these findings are discussed.
