Personal profile

Research interests

I examine diverse topics in social psychology, including international projects on the following issues:

  • social values
  • methods to increase intellectual humility in debate 
  • the role of values in close relationships
  • family relationships
  • attitudes to children

These and other projects have led to diverse articles and chapters and two books, The Psychology of Values, and The Psychology of Attitudes and Attitude Change (with Geoff Haddock), now entering its 3rd edition.
