Introduction. Sophie Fielding Discuss two ways in which prejudice can be reduced. You should draw on psychological theory and research Two ways in which prejudice can be reduced are Equal status contact and the pursuit of common goals. Deutsch and Collins (1951) carried out an early study of equal status contact. They compared two kinds of housing projects, one of which was thoroughly integrated with blacks and whites who were assigned houses regardless of their race, and the other was segregated. The residents of both housing projects were intensively interviewed and it was found that both casual and neighbourly contact were greater in the integrated housing with less prejudice among whites towards blacks. It appeared to be environmental support, which was sustaining prejudice in the segregated housing. This shows us that when people of different racial groups or in fact any kind of group are put together in a situation where they can not do much about it grow to be less ...

*  Approaches to well-being, use of psychology and paternalism in economics
Downloadable! This paper discusses three approaches to well-being in economics which use insights from psychology to support their position: Scitovsky's Joyless Economy, happiness economics, and the constitutional approach to happiness in economics. It shows that in the way these approaches make use of psychology, normative choice is involved, and there is room for personal judgement. First, an approach to well-being, as an approach to what is worth pursuing, is necessarily normative. The use of psychological theories to support an approach to well-being relies on a normative step, revealed by the choice of a psychological theory by the economist. Second, personal judgement is often needed to translate the findings of psychology to recommendations for practice. Both things have implications for those theories which define well-being as something different than the fulfillment of individual preferences whatever they are, and therefore yield potential for paternalism. The ...

*  Applying psychological theories to evidence-based clinical practice: identifying factors predictive of placing preventive...
The objective of this study was to identify factors derived from psychological models predictive of an evidence-based clinical behaviour, the placing of PFS in six to sixteen year old patients in Scotland. A theory-based questionnaire was developed to assess constructs from six models and applied to the prediction of clinical decision-making based on scenarios (behavioural simulation), as well as dentists' intention to place PFS to manage caries in this age group.. Of the six models, only the CS-SRM did not explain a significant proportion of the variance in both behavioural simulation and intention. Only behavioural stage did not account for significant variance in behavioural simulation. The usual approaches to measuring behavioural stage in the literature were used in this study, but a more complex approach may be more informative in terms of the number and the nature of the stages when ...

*  The intelligence factory | Psychological Theory
For reasons of neighbourhood activism, I get lots of mail from nightclubs. They affect a keen interest in my well-being, and assure me that they are respectable operations, not the sorts of rowdy places from which drunkards disgorge in the small hours of the morning, vomiting, slamming car doors and occasionally knifing similarly inebriated revellers. No, they assure me, such things will never happen at their establishment, but just in case of any problems they have provided a telephone number for residents, which they ask me to circulate, where complaints will be carefully taken down, logged, recorded, considered and ignored.. So, it was with some excitement that I received what appeared to be a golden key to the VIP section of a nightclub, Room 70. In addition to the key there was a good quality brass lapel badge. I was prepared to be suborned by these gifts, but it turned out to be the entrance to an even more entertaining locale: a Scottish intelligence factory.. The golden key was a USB ...

*  Cognitive representations of disability behaviours in people with mobility limitations : consistency with theoretical...
Disability is conceptualised as behaviour by psychological theory and as a result of bodily impairment by medical models. However, how people with disabilities conceptualise those disabilities is unclear. The purpose of this study was to examine disability representations in people with mobility disabilities. Thirteen people with mobility disabilities completed personal repertory grids (using the method of triads) applied to activities used to measure disabilities. Ten judges with expertise in health psychology then examined the correspondence between the elicited disability constructs and psychological and medical models of disability. Participants with mobility disabilities generated 73 personal constructs of disability. These constructs were judged consistent with the content of two psychological models, namely the theory of planned behaviour and social cognitive ...

*  Outline and assess none sociological theories of crime and deviance? - A-Level Sociology - Marked by Teachers.com
Introduction. Outline and assess none sociological theories of crime and deviance? Deviance is behavior that violates the norms and values of society and induces a negative reaction in a majority of the members of that society. An example of this would be burping in public. Crime is also behavior that violates the norms and values of society, however the behavior is deemed so bad to society that the state has put in place rules and punishments to stop this behavior from happening. An example of this is murder, and the punishment in UK is life imprisonment. Functionalist believe that deviance isn't a bad thing and that every society will generate deviance and have crime rates because the existence of norms and values and individual differences create deviance and rule breaking. There are many none sociological theories of crime and deviance. They can be split up into two categories biological and psychological theories. First I will look at biological theories and outline and assess their views ...

*  Morbid Anatomy: May 2010
In his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Denial of Death, cultural anthropologist Ernest Becker attempted to develop a unified theory of human behavior. He argued that it was the human capacity to grasp and contemplate our own mortality-and our need to suppress this knowledge-that was at the root of human culture and behavior, from genocide to altruism, religion to philosophy. Terror Management Theory (TMT) is a psychological theory directly based on Becker's work, developed by a group of social psychologists interested in testing Becker's assertions about death as a core motivator of human behavior. Over the last 25 years, psychologists in the North America, Europe and the Middle East have conducted hundreds of studies to test hypothesis derived from Becker's work and the Terror Management Theory it inspired. This body of research compellingly supports Becker's thesis and reveals the ways in which mortality salience influences behaviors ranging ...

*  General Neuroscience
Topic 2: Conflict and Cooperation. Generally, cognitive neuroscience aims to explain how mental processes such as believing, knowing, and inferring arise in the brain and affect behavior. Two behaviors that have important effects on the survival of humans are cooperation and conflict.. According to the NSF committee convened last year, conflict and cooperation is an important focus area for future cognitive neuroscience work. Although research in this area has typically been the domain of psychologists, it seems that the time is ripe to apply findings from neuroscience to ground psychological theories in the underlying biology.. Neuroscience has produced a large amount of information about the brain regions that are relevant to social interactions. For example, the amygdala has been shown to be involved in strong emotional responses. The "mirror" neuron system in the frontal lobe allows us to put ourselves in someone else's shoes by allowing us to understand their actions as though they were ...
