Why Some Forms of Induction Are Better than Others at Encouraging Prosocial Behavior.
McGrath, Marianne P.; And Others
Merrill-Palmer Quarterly, v41 n3 p347-60 Jul 1995
Examined the effects of different forms of induction on children's prosocial behavior with 80 children ages 7 and 8 years. Hypotheses were evaluated regarding the cognitive component of the induction and the manipulation of choice. The findings, which were consistent with self-perception theory, help clarify when induction encourages internalized prosocial behavior. (AA)
