Article
Purpose/objective: Emerging research has highlighted sources of magnified stress and trauma for people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic, as compared to others in the general population. However, little research has examined the mental health impact of the pandemic on people with disabilities in relation to disability-related stigma,...
Chapter
This chapter synthesizes the benefits and limitations of different program types, and compares the effectiveness of initiatives that minimize disability status compared to those that keep disability categorization salient. The interventions in the chapter are organized into three parts: direct and indirect contact approaches, categorical framing st...
Chapter
This chapter describes one of the most basic origins of disability prejudice based on evolutionary arguments, and provides evidence about when, where, and with whom this more unconscious form of prejudice is most likely to emerge. Extending the idea of disability as a threat to survival, the chapter examines how and when disability threatens belief...
Chapter
Justification ideologies include “any set of beliefs, attitudes, values, or group stereotypes which provide the moral and intellectual support for group‐based inequality”. Once scientific breakthroughs identified the various biomedical origins of conditions like blindness, dyslexia, and muscular dystrophy, a new ideological construction emerged to...
Chapter
This chapter is devoted to work on the relevance of intergroup conflict, the recognition of discrimination as injustice, and the impact of collective actions that confront prejudice and challenge the status quo. Beginning with a brief review of the disability rights movement in the United States and actions that altered the normative landscape, it...
Chapter
This chapter illustrates the multiple manifestations or forms that prejudicial attitudes can take. Attitudes toward disability are often described as negative, provoking aversion, hostility, and contempt, or alternatively, distress, guilt, and pity. On the other hand, disability attitudes can also seem positive, evoking feelings of compassion, insp...
Chapter
This chapter focuses on disability stereotypes as one of the more proximal causes of prejudice: the group‐specific beliefs that provoke and maintain ableist judgments and other forms of differential treatment. Distinguishing between stereotypes that are culturally shared and individually endorsed, impairment‐ specific or cross‐impairment, it emphas...
Article
Disabled people experience ableism in many forms from the seemingly benevolent to the blatantly hostile, and more ambivalent or mixed forms (e.g., paternalistic/condescending and jealous/envy). Rooted in historic and contemporary frameworks, this study explores the experiences of an international sample of disabled people (N = 185) using six open‐e...

Objective: To investigate the impact of disability simulations on mood, self-ascribed disability stereotypes, attitudes about interacting with disabled individuals, and behavioral intentions for improving campus accessibility. Design: Experiment 1 evaluated disability-awareness simulations by randomly assigning undergraduates (N = 60) with and w...
Article
Full-text available
Following social identity theory, the present investigation examines the political benefits of self-identification as a member of the disability community for disability-rights advocacy across college (n = 204), community (N = 93), and international (N = 268) samples of adults with disabilities. Consistent with predictions, emerging adults (EAs) wi...

Antifat stigma is pervasive, often incurring deleterious effects on well-being among fat women. Based on predictions from Social Identity Theory, we examined the relationship between fat group identification, individual and collective responses to stigma, body satisfaction and self-esteem among a community-based sample of fat women. Fat group ident...
Chapter
Identification with social groups, including stigmatized groups, can promote health and well-being, especially in the face of social disadvantage, persistent discrimination, and other stressful conditions. Despite these findings, little has been done to apply this research using positive psychological interventions as a model to leverage social ide...
Article
Full-text available
This article suggests that undergraduate research can help advance the science of psychology. We introduce a hypothetical "question-list paradigm" as a mechanism to do this. Each year, thousands of undergraduate projects are completed as part of the educational experience. Although many of these studies may not contain sufficient contributions for...
Article
Full-text available
People cope with stigma via individualistic strategies that minimize stigmatized attributes, and collective strategies that positively redefine stigmatized traits. Guided by social identity theory, we surveyed people with hidden and visible disabilities to investigate the association between disability identification and strategy use. Further, we t...
Article
Despite the fact that disabled people comprise a heterogeneous social group, cross-impairment cultural stereotypes reflect a consistent set of beliefs used to characterize this population as dependent, incompetent, and asexual. Using a free-response methodology, stereotypical beliefs about disabled men (DM) and women (DW) were contrasted against th...
Article
Full-text available
An "evidentiary standards" approach was used to examine how standards for trait diagnosis may become more lenient or stringent depending on category membership of the target being judged and the type of standard-minimum or confirmatory - being referenced. Three studies demonstrated that minimal standards are lower but confirmatory standards are hig...
Chapter
Full-text available
The present study examined professor perceptions of college applicants as a function of students’ learning disability status and professors’ level of identification with academic groups. Findings revealed that professors have differential expectations about the academic potential of students who experience learning disabilities consistent with nega...
Article
Full-text available
A new measure sensitive to differences in the importance that people ascribe to their social (group) and personal identities is described. The Social and Personal Identities (SIPI) scale distinguishes between the interpersonal level of self which differentiates the individual as unique from others, and the social identity level of self whereby the...
Article
Full-text available
Victim and assailant blame, as well as the perceived injustice and severity of a rape event, were examined as a function of the type of counterfactual alternative to which the identically described event was compared. It was hypothesized that when perceivers imagine an alternative outcome that is even worse than the original rape event, the perceiv...

Article
Full-text available
It was hypothesized that hindsight effects and biased causal attributions both result from the causal explanations that perceivers construct when linking antecedents to outcomes at encoding. Specifically, the likelihood of a particular outcome and its perceived causal origins should depend on the number of causal antecedents available, the complexi...
