Witte, Kim
Communication Monographs, v61 n2 p113-34 Jun 1994
Explores cognitive and emotional mechanisms underlying success and failure of fear appeals in context of AIDS prevention. Offers general support for Extended Parallel Process Model. Suggests that cognitions lead to fear appeal success (attitude, intention, or behavior changes) via danger control processes, whereas the emotion fear leads to fear appeal failure (defensive avoidance or reactants) via fear control processes.
