Article
Deze studie onderzoekt in hoeverre informatieverstrekking over een beslisproces invloed heeft op de agressie van cliënten tegen UWV-medewerkers. De verwachting is dat adequate informatie tot een afname in agressie leidt, doordat deze zorgt voor meer informatieve rechtvaardigheidsgevoelens en minder frustratie. UWV-cliënten (N=1.415) participeerden...

Project
Some employees have more often been confronted with aggression from the public than others. To what extent are target characteristics (such as empathy, dominance and self-evaluations) related to being confronted with less or more aggression? Using qualitative (interviews) and quantitative (longitudinal survey design) measures, I try to answer this question, and try to explore differences between the three professions.
