We aim to understand how four resident psychologists perceive and perform interventions regarding the religious beliefs of patients and companions seen in a general hospital. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews, and were analysis in an empirical phenomenological perspective. We list and discuss the following axes of meaning: religious belief as constitutive experience and a factor of signification; religious belief as a way of blocking contact; place of listening and sustaining therapeutic relationship front the religious belief of the other. Resident psychologists have reported that religious belief expand or reduces the patient's and companion's experience face of sickness, hospitalization and treatment, so that they can re-signify, step in, avoid or disengage from their health-illness-care process
