We explored the relationships among religious participation, spirituality, Africultural coping styles, and religious problem-solving styles in a sample of 144 African American college students. Results revealed that religious participation and spirituality accounted for significant variance in aspects of Africultural coping styles and religious problem-solving styles. Implications of the findings for college and university counseling center personnel are discussed.
