The Society for the Psychology of Religion and Spirituality is a division of the American Psychological Association that promotes psychological theory, research, and clinical practice to understand the significance of religion and spirituality in peoples' lives and in the discipline of psychology. The Society facilitates the interchange of ideas between science, clinical and applied practice, and seeks through its activities to increase public awareness of psychological dimensions of religion and spirituality. The Society is nonsectarian and does not espouse or endorse any particular religious positions or beliefs. It welcomes psychologists and others from around the world interested in the psychology of religion and spirituality.

The official Division 36 journal, Psychology of Religion and Spirituality® publishes articles employing experimental and correlational methods, qualitative analyses, and critical reviews of the literature.
