Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study reports results from a 3-condition experiment (N = 80), wherein participants either read an article about a person (high vs. low social similarity) struggling with severe depression or no article (control), before viewing a stimulus website for a faux peer support organization. The results indicated that the level of empathic responses, positive attitudes, and the likelihood of engaging in helping behaviors, might be enhanced after reading about a socially similar person with depression.
