One aspect of the project will involve the development of a national network of peer helpers to whom police officers can turn to in case of need.

“The two initiatives are explained by the same need, that of improving the support that police officers receive in organizations related to psychological health issues,” said Marc Desaulniers, director of research, expertise and pedagogy at the ÉNPQ, while emphasizing that these issues have been well documented in scientific literature for 15 years.

The project will be funded through more than $1.2 million granted by the Quebec Ministry of Public Security for the period 2022-2025. The lion’s share of this amount, more than $410,000, will be released for the 2024-2025 fiscal year.

New psychology research has found that celebrity worship predicts impulsive buying behavior – PsyPost

Can worshipping celebrities be a predictor of impulse shopping? A study published in Frontiers in Psychology suggests that it could be, but the relationship appears to be mediated by empathy.

Celebrities are influential figures and marketing often utilizes them to add value to products. An endorsement from a celebrity that consumers deem attractive or trustworthy can go a long way in making sales. Part of why this marketing strategy is successful is due to many people idolizing their favorite celebrities. Celebrity worship can be either pathological or non-pathological, with the former being compulsive. Researchers hypothesized that celebrity worship would be associated with higher impulsive buying intent.

People with borderline pathological celebrity worship agree with statements such as “I would gladly die in order to save the life of my favorite celebrity.”

Study author Outong Chen and colleagues utilized 1,319 participants who ranged in age from 16 to 30. Participants were recruited from a college in October 2021. Participants completed measures on celebrity attitudes, impulsive buying intent, and interpersonal reactivity (which is used to measure empathy). Participants completed questionnaires in a random order. Chen and colleagues predicted that empathy may act as a mediator and gender may act as a moderator for the relationship between celebrity worship and impulsive buying intent.

Results showed that borderline pathological celebrity worship did positively predict impulsive buying behavior and that this relationship was mediated by empathy and moderated by gender, as researchers had predicted. Higher levels of celebrity worship were associated with higher levels of empathy, which led to greater impulsive buying intent. This relationship was found to be stronger among male participants than among female participants.

Impulsive buying intent was stronger among women at lower levels of celebrity worship, but there were no significant gender differences at borderline pathological levels of celebrity worship. Previous research has found that decision-making is more impulsive when made for close family or friends, suggesting that empathy is related to impulse in decision-making. This finding is consistent with that.

“The present results contribute to previous findings by focusing on a specific level of celebrity worship, borderline pathological level, and revealing that borderline pathological celebrity worship may provoke impulsive buying intent,” the researchers said. “This impulsive buying intent could affect daily consumer behavior extensively, rather than leading them to focus on some specific merchandise connected to specific celebrities.”

But …….

The Psychology Of An Economist, Through Two Books – Forbes

Economists seem to be everywhere nowadays. Economics, after all, is one of the most influential if not the most influential of the social sciences (don’t worry fellow psychologists, I think you’re great too). Even when I was getting a PhD in psychology studying quantitative methods, gifted education, and talent development, I often read the work of economists that study human capital development, such as Claudia Goldin, Enrico Moretti, and Garett Jones since their work was relevant to my own. Now in the field of education policy, I’ve discovered that economists and their tools are extremely influential. For example, for the first time there is now a chief economist of the U.S. Department of Education, seeming to mimic the structure of chief economists at many major companies.

Thinking like an economist and Doing economics book covers

Elizabeth Popp Berman and Marc F. Bellemare

How did economists become so influential?

To better understand how economists have become so influential, turning to the in-depth historical research of a sociologist clearly obsessed with this question is extremely helpful to any outside observer. Elizabeth Popp Berman’s new book Thinking like an economist: How efficiency replaced equality in U.S. public policy provides, in the words on the publisher’s page, “The story of how economic reasoning came to dominate Washington between the 1960s and 1980s—and why it continues to constrain progressive ambitions today.” For me at least, reading the book was extremely insightful from a psychological perspective to understand the sociological and historical way of seeing how the economic style of reasoning become so influential and popular, and to recognize that this is what it is, an influential style or way of thinking and approaching problems, often using highly technical econometric tools.

How can one think more like an economist?

To better understand the psychology of an economist, it is extremely useful to read career advice books written by economists themselves. One book I found helpful is The Economist’s Craft by Michael S. Weisbach. However, the book that really helped me understand the economic style of reasoning and approaching problems is Doing economics: What you should have learned in grad school—but didn’t by Marc F. Bellemare. Marc’s book is extremely insightful because …….

“It’s reverse psychology in a way” – Tsitsipas on Nadal’s foot injury talk – TennisUpToDate.com

Rafael Nadal’s ability to overcome physical ailments on the big stage was lauded by Stefanos Tsitsipas,
who declared that the Spaniard was most threatening whenever he
expressed an inability to play.

Rafael Nadal stunned the tennis world by getting past Novak Djokovic
in the quarterfinals of the French Open en route to a 14th title win
despite going into the tournament with pain and foot problems.

Over the course of a pre-tournament press conference, Tsitsipas used the term “reverse psychology” to describe how Rafael Nadal was at his best when considered not fully fit.

He said:

“When he says that he can’t play and that he has foot problems, that’s where he is most threatening. It’s actually reverse psychology in a way.”

Tsitsipas continued:


“I have a lot of respect for what he did at the French Open, playing with his foot like that. They somehow make him feel like he’s immortal, the things that he’s capable of. The level of intensity that he is capable of at times when he is very uncomfortable, it would be difficult for most players to compete in these conditions physically.”

Developmental Psychology – Seasons of Life – VCY America – VCY America

I recall taking a college course called “Developmental
Psychology” which examined how humans develop
psychologically through different stages of life. We had a series
of guest lecturers who were specialists in development at
different stages, such as early childhood, teen years, midlife, or
old age.

We soon noticed every lecture began the same way. The early
childhood specialist would state this was a “critical stage”
because… The adolescent specialist also claimed to address a
critical stage, as did the rest of the guests. After about the fifth
guest speaker, someone asked the professor, “What stage of
life is not a ‘critical stage’?”

That was a revelation moment for me that every stage of life
matters. God’s assignments change with the different seasons
of life. Our work and ministry may differ from one season to
the next, but there will never be a time when God doesn’t have
something specific for us to accomplish.

Remember, don’t be discouraged over the season you are in
right now. Just determine how you’ll redeem the time.

Rick Grubbs is best known as the host of “Redeeming the Time,” a one-minute radio program featured on hundreds of radio outlets around the world. He has spoken thousands of times on Biblical time management in all 50 states and 26 other countries. He is the author of the book “Morning Momentum: God’s plan for launching an unstoppable day.” He and his wife, Carrie, live in Salisbury, NC, with several of their 12 children.

Exhibit by Tulane architecture and psychology faculty and students explores monuments and memorials – news.tulane.edu

An exhibit highlighting monuments and memorials as a way of creating more just and equitable spaces in New Orleans and beyond is now on display at the AIA New Orleans Design Center, 1000 St. Charles Ave.

Titled Public Spaces & Scrutiny: How Do We Remember? the exhibit is a collaboration between students and faculty at the Tulane School of Architecture and the Tulane School of Science and Engineering’s Department of Psychology.

The exhibit will be up through June 25th and is open to the public on weekdays from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m.

“We hope this exhibition can ignite conversations surrounding the design of public spaces and monuments.”

Tiffany Lin, an associate professor of architecture at Tulane

“We are lucky to have access to the AIA Design Center exhibition space, aptly located in the shadow of the pedestal that used to celebrate Robert E. Lee,” said Tiffany Lin, an associate professor of architecture who spearheaded the project with Emilie Taylor Welty, a professor of practice at the Tulane School of Architecture and social psychologist Lisa Molix, an associate professor of psychology.

“Facing the Civil War Museum, our exhibit frames the silhouettes of the four monuments removed in New Orleans with statistics that visualize the daunting work ahead. We hope this exhibition can ignite conversations surrounding the design of public spaces and monuments.”

The exhibit showcases research and student work, supported by an SOM Foundation Research Prize, which was awarded to the Tulane interdisciplinary team in 2020. The research focuses on monuments, what they honor and how their design memorializes the truth — or fiction — of the past. Grounded in research on the history and typologies of monument design, and a recently conducted national survey, the exhibit also explores ways to create more equitable public spaces in New Orleans and beyond.

The work displayed offers strategies to bridge the gap between architects and the general public, specifically when designing for urban spaces marked by racial injustice.

“I hope folks leave this exhibit with a better understanding of how the design of public space is …….
