The aim of the current project is to use the IRAP, a measure of relational responding, as a supplement to traditional subjective questionnaires in assessing attitudes towards (i) children with autism, (ii) students with ADHD and anxiety, (iii) bullying in schools and colleges, (iv) beauty bias in employment, and (v) alcohol consumption.
The present study extends previous research by the current authors which found that the construct of ‘wanting more’ was significantly associated with increased materialism, reduced life satisfaction, and negative affect in a sample of University students. The purpose of the current research is to explore whether the same cognitive processes might underpin addictive behaviour. Specifically, this study aims to assess implicit and explicit biases towards ‘wanting more’ in a sample of individuals engaged with addiction services versus a healthy control sample.
