Document Summary

Social psychology: social psychology the scientific study of how we think about, influence, and relate to one another. Attributions: attribution theory, situational attributions (take external factors into consideration) versus dispositional. Understanding prejudice: modern and implicit prejudice prejudice and stereotypes may influence behaviour in subtle ways, perhaps even outside of our conscious awareness. What are the consequences: because modern prejudice is subtle, it can lead to situational ambiguity, minority stress, lower well-being, stereotype threat, uneasy interactions, real life discrimination. Inequality is not just a function of interpersonal prejudice, it is an overarching, comprehensive framework of policies, practices, institutions and cultural norms that undergird every aspect of [a given] society --transnational racial justice initiative, 2001, p. Reducing prejudice: change ingroup versus outgroup perceptions, fight and vote against structural inequality (historical & current) Attitudes: attitudes are beliefs and feelings that predispose our reactions towards an object, person, or event.
