...
Now, in an attempt to bridge research on spirituality with public awareness, Lisa Miller, professor and director of clinical psychology at Columbia University and director of the Spirituality Mind Body Institute, travels the country telling parents they owe it to their kids to nurture their innate spiritual abilities. Religiously aware adolescents who feel connected to a higher power are 40 percent less likely to abuse substances, 60 percent less likely to battle depression, and 80 percent less likely to engage in at-risk sexual behaviors.
Miller finds scientifically plausible the notion that human beings, particularly teenagers and young adults, are wired for transcendence and possess inborn spirituality that must be used-or lost. While growing up, she benefitted from her mother's vocal prayers and her father's quiet sharing of spiritual moments, like the time his deceased mother appeared to him in a dream and assured him she would always be his mother. Calling spiritual connection a buffer not only against substance abuse, but also against "cortical thinness" of the brain associated with Alzheimer's and depression, Miller recommends that secular adults overcome their reluctance about religious practices so that their children avoid finding pseudo-transcendence through drugs, alcohol, and sex. But ambivalence runs deep, she finds, and doubtful parents, often wary of hypocrisy, tend to ignore children's spiritual-awakening experiences and questions.
Miller's mission fills an interesting niche in our increasingly secular age, which is often ambivalent about, and at times outright hostile, to religion.

[Our most recent guest in the Waterford Lecture Series was Prof. Lisa Miller of Columbia University.

...
A professor of clinical psychology on the teaching faculty at Teachers College, Columbia University, Dr. Miller has become a leading authority on the positive role spirituality plays in the lives of adolescents. The general thesis of Dr. Miller’s research is that spiritual beliefs and practices are protective against depression, self harm, drug/alcohol abuse, and risk-taking behavior - all the most common forms of adolescent pathology. Given the strength of the correlation between spiritual practice and lower incidence of adolescent pathology, Dr. Miller suggests that parents and educators should look for ways to support the spiritual development of their children and students.
Dr. Miller delivered presentations about her research to three different audiences during her visit to the Waterford campus - parents, students, and faculty. I listened with great interest to all three presentations, and tried to reflect on her ideas from the multiple perspectives I bring as the Academic Dean, as a teacher, and as a parent of Waterford students.
