A bit more of a theological question here. Being a werewolf adds a whole new aspect to one's identity, psychology and self. How do you think it would effect a persons soul?

A soul is your conscience  if your believe in Jesus and by conscience I mean your memories thoughts and behavior, so it would affect the way you think.

I've always wondered how much of a change it could have to a person's psychology.  With the increase in animalistic instincts that pertain much to a natural hunter, I feel that the psychological changes would not be too severe. Both humans and animals hunt prey, so they both have their own "tools of the trade" when it comes to catching a meal.

Other than the "natural hunter" instinct a werewolf would obtain after being turned into a werewolf, much of their psychology would be left unchanged.

(I do hope I can figure out how to explain this part.)

A werewolf's primary attitude/thought process depends highly on their sociological origins. If the werewolf was raised in a suburban family before being turned into a werewolf, they would still have the mindset of a person who lives in the suburbs. I mean, sure, they're now covered in a bunch of fur and seem to have an affinity for more meat, but they are otherwise still themselves.

How they act after being turned into a werewolf is susceptible to their surroundings. If the werewolf were to leave the suburban life and live in a forest, they would start picking up the traits of a forest-living werewolf instead of a suburb-living werewolf. 

To summarize: A werewolf's soul adapts to their surroundings, much like a human's soul would.

I'll whip out a little bit of an LDS perspective: if the body and spirit are the soul of man, such a drastic shift in bodily identity would change a shift in the soul. However, unless lycanthropy would in some way disable one's covenant-making and -keeping ability (say, by turning the person into a bloodthirsty berserker every month with no capacity for self-control), I would say that the requirements upon the lycanthrope's soul--the covenants humans would take on--would remain unchanged.

If there is some effect on the agency to take on and keep covenants, however, I feel that lycanthropy could be treated theologically as either a disability or, perhaps, an ethnicity; perhaps there could be lycanthropic wards--with activities involving locking the entire congregation inside an enclosure every full moon!
