International media coverage promotes donations to a climate disaster

Cassandra M. Chapman et 4 al.

Jul 16, 2022 in Disasters
The Australian bushfires in 2019–2020 triggered massive amounts of charitable giving from the community. We applied agenda‐setting theory to examine if and how disaster news coverage influenced public donations in response to the crisis. A survey of 949 Australians found that people perceived news coverage of the event to be a strong influence on the amount they donated to bushfire appeals, over a...


Belief in Luck and Precognition Around the World

Emily A. Harris et 3 al.

Jul 14, 2022 in Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology
Journal of Cross Cultural Psychology, Ahead of Print. Although magical beliefs (such as belief in luck and precognition) are presumably universal, the extent to which such beliefs are embraced likely varies across cultures. We assessed the effect of culture on luck and precognition beliefs in two large scale multinational studies (Study 1: k = 16, N = 17,664; Study 2: k = 25, N = 4,024). Over and ...

Three hypotheses were tested, which considered how patterns of ...

Comparing the Effectiveness of Post Scandal Apologies From Nonprofit and Commercial Organizations: An Extension of the Moral Disillusionment Model

Cassandra M. Chapman, Steven Lockey et 5 al.

Dec 11, 2021 in Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly
Nonprofit and Voluntary Sector Quarterly, Ahead of Print. There is a double standard in public responses to scandals: Nonprofits are penalized more harshly than commercial organizations for the same transgression (the “moral disillusionment effect”). However, previous research—focused on commercial organizations—has sometimes shown that a positive reputation can insure organizations against the ne...


Why Facts Are Not Enough: Understanding and Managing the Motivated Rejection of Science

Matthew J. Hornsey

Jan 1, 2020 in Current Directions in Psychological Science
Efforts to change the attitudes of creationists, antivaccination advocates, and climate skeptics by simply providing evidence have had limited success. Motivated reasoning helps make sense of this communication challenge: If people are motivated to hold a scientifically unorthodox belief, they selectively interpret evidence to reinforce their preferred position. In the current article, I summarize...
