Emotions and Complex Social Problems (Turkey)

, Elizabeth Summerell, Karolina Dyduch-Hazar & Meghann Matthews
Apologies can improve intergroup attitudes in a number of ways such as fostering forgiveness, changing attitudes towards the outgroup after an apology has been given, and restoring trust (for a review, see Blatz & Philpot, 2010). However, there are many psychological barriers experienced by transgressors hindering their willingness to offer an apology, including: Low concern for the victim or relationship, perceived threat to the transgressor’s self-image, and perceived apology ineffectiveness (Schumann, 2018). Humility may be...

Flourishing at Work - Factors effecting employee wellbeing. A project to benchmark employee wellbeing over time.

Louisa Salhi, Nicole Facey-Campbell & Lily Mainstone-Cotton
Background and rationale: Highlighted in the ‘thriving at work’ (2017) report, we know that 80% of employees have or will have concerns about their mental health in their career. This is staggeringly high, with 20% of these needing to take additional action to gain support. These figures are from resources pre-2017; since the Covid-19 pandemic started in March 2020 we know that mental health needs in general have been exacerbated by the pandemic itself, associated...

Firesetting Treatment Needs: One Time Vs Multiple Firesetters

Katie Sambrooks, Theresa Gannon & Nichola Tyler
Deliberate firesetting is a prevalent form of offending that has devastating consequences for societies worldwide (Tyler et al., 2019). The most recent comprehensive theory of deliberate firesetting by adults, The Multi-Trajectory Theory of Adult Firesetting (M-TTAF; Gannon et al., 2012, 2022), has suggested key psychological vulnerabilities associated with firesetting. These vulnerabilities can be broadly grouped into four areas: fire-related factors (including fire interest); offence-supportive attitudes; self and emotional regulation issues; and issues with social competence....

Exploring the use of moral reframing

Aaron Martin & Roger Giner-Sorolla
Moral reframing has been put forward as a tool for people to use to gather support on policy issues from politically (and ideologically) dissimilar others. Essentially, moral reframing utilises wording/arguments that tap into the target audience’s morality to persuade them to support policies/positions they typically wouldn’t otherwise. As an example, in the US, one could morally reframe the issue of pro-environmentalism with wording/arguments about patriotism and purity to sway ideologically conservative Americans to show more...
