The Role of Self-Efficacy and Identity in Mediating the Effects of STEM Support Experiences.

Anal Soc Issues Public Policy 2019 Dec 29;19(1):7-49. Epub 2018 Oct 29.

Department of Psychology, University of California Santa Cruz.

We report results from two studies testing the Mediation Model of Research Experiences (MMRE), which posits that science (or engineering) self-efficacy and identity as a scientist (or engineer) mediate the association between support programs and students' commitment to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers. Study 1 included 502 matriculated and recently graduated undergraduate STEM students. Structural equation modeling analyses indicated that research experience, instrumental mentoring, and involvement in a community of scientists were associated with commitment to a STEM career, mediated through science/engineering self-efficacy and identity as a scientist/engineer.

Violence in context: Embracing an ecological approach to violent media exposure.

Anal Soc Issues Public Policy 2016 Dec 14;16(1):425-428. Epub 2016 Mar 14.

Department of Psychology, Tulane University School of Science and Engineering.

This commentary expands on Anderson, Bushman, Donnerstein, Hummer, and Warburton's agenda for minimizing the impacts of violent media exposure (VME) on youth aggression. We argue that in order to effectively intervene in the development of aggression and other maladaptive traits, researchers and policymakers should take an ecological, developmental psychopathology approach to understanding children's exposure to VME within developmental, relational, environmental, and cultural contexts. Such a framework holds the most promise for identifying at-risk groups, establishing targets of intervention, and testing mechanisms of change. Read More

Perceived Discrimination and Social Relationship Functioning among Sexual Minorities: Structural Stigma as a Moderating Factor.

Anal Soc Issues Public Policy 2015 Dec 6;15(1):357-381. Epub 2015 Oct 6.

Tulane University.

Work on structural stigma shows how public policy affects health outcomes for members of devalued groups, including sexual minorities. In the current research, structural stigma is proposed as a moderating variable that strengthens deleterious associations between perceived discrimination and social relationship functioning. Hypotheses were tested in two cross-sectional studies, including both online (N = 214; Study 1) and community (N = 94; Study 2) samples of sexual minority men and women residing throughout the United States.

Contentment to resentment: Variation in stereotype content across status systems.

Anal Soc Issues Public Policy 2012 Dec;12(1):324-329

Princeton University.

This paper describes an integration of the stereotype content model with social identity theory in which we theorise links between the legitimacy and stability of status relations between groups on the one hand, and stereotypes of warmth and competence on the other. Warmth stereotypes associate with the perceived morality of inequalities, so we reason that high and low status groups are more differentiated in warmth in illegitimate status systems. Also, stereotypes of competence explain status differences, so differences in stereotypical competence may be more pronounced when status is stable rather than unstable. Read More
