Dr. Henderson’s research examines the influence of religion on health and family outcomes, with a strong emphasis on the implications of religious institutions, practices and values among Black Americans. An important aspect of her research examines how religious involvement protects against the adverse influence of stress on health and family outcomes. Other projects focus on how religion influences, and is influenced by, other social processes and institutions (e.g., education, environment, and discrimination).
