The present study investigates the differentiating role of religious involvement in a level of resiliency, religious orientations, and life attitudes in a sample of 131 women. We examined the associations between resiliency and religious orientations as psychological resources, and life attitudes as an indicator of mental health in the noetic dimension in 4 groups. The following methods were used: the KPB-PO (Uchnast, 1997), a set of scales “Your religiosity” (Socha, 1992), and the Life Attitude Profile-Revised (Reker, 1992). Analyses of the data confirmed that religious involvement differentiates the level of resiliency, intrinsic and extrinsic religious orientations, as well as life attitudes excluding death acceptance. Furthermore, the results suggested that resiliency is an important resource in believers and non-practicing believers. Sense of security is a relevant correlate of meaning of life in non-believers. However, internally motivated religiosity which is characteristic of deep believers seemed to have the greatest influence on mental health.
Key words: resiliency, religious orientations, life attitudes, women
