The School of Psychology and Neuroscience is hosting a seminar by Professor Hanna Zagefka of Royal Holloway, University of London.
'Group belonging and compassion'
'How we see ourselves and others is not set in stone but is malleable. Perceived group memberships of the self and of others have important consequences for intergroup helping -- they inform when compassionate responses are triggered. This talk investigates social psychological mechanisms of group belonging and intergroup helping, drawing on data collected in a range of different national contexts.'
