My research can be broadly defined as applied social psychology: the primary goal of this research program is to test and extend important theories in the ‘real world’. For example, despite widespread evidence for the performance costs of stereotype threat, little research has examined other psychological consequences. My students and I found that stereotype threat is associated with negative job attitudes and can lead to career disengagement among stereotyped groups (e.g., women working in male dominated fields; older employees). My work on implicit (unconscious) attitudes and prejudice has followed a similar path. Critics have questioned whether implicit attitudes can independently predict important behavioural outcomes. In our research my collaborators and I have demonstrated the importance of implicit attitudes in predicting behaviours such as nurses’ turnover intentions and drug users’ capacity to remain in residential rehabilitation.
