Description

Social psychologists have studied beliefs and values and related constructs such as "attitudes" and "prejudice" for decades. But as this innovative andinterdisciplinary book convincingly demonstrates, the scientific examination of beliefs and values now influences research and practice across a range ofdisciplines. Specifically, this edited volume explores the many cutting-edge implications and applications of Equilintegration (EI) Theory and the Beliefs, Events, and Values Inventory (BEVI). Grounded in 20 years of research and practice, EI Theory seeks to explain the processes by which beliefs, values, and worldviews are acquired and maintained, why their alteration is resisted, and under what circumstances they are modified. Based upon EI Theory, the BEVI is a comprehensive analytic tool that examines how and why we come to see ourselves, others, and the world as we do, as well as the influence of such processes on multiple aspects of human functioning.
