Summary or Abstract : Mahler (1975) was one of the first theorists to explore psychological development over time, as she related this to physical development. Rizzuto (1979) took the theory to a more specific level in discussing spiritual development in terms of God image and its dynamic development over the lifespan. Finally, Lawrence (1997) developed a psychometric tool to measure a person's concept of God when he developed the God Image Inventory (GII), a self-report inventory measuring eight aspects of the image of God. The current study further explored the idea of the image of God as a changing entity with individuals over time. This current study used the GII to measure the possible change in God concepts in graduate students over three years of a doctoral clinical psychology program. Thirty-six students completed the longitudinal study, completing a 27-item form of the GII four times over three years of their study. The results showed a negative change over time across all scales of the GII, as well as a decrease in church attendance for most subjects. The results of this study suggest that the subjects' experience of God was challenged over the course of their three year involvement in the project. Because most religiously oriented graduate programs in clinical psychology stress growth in both clinical skills as well as a closer relationship with God as the goals of their programs, the implications of this study may necessitate a more direct focus on spiritual care within the programs. Further study in this area is needed to help specify the possible causes of the change of scores over time with this population..
