Applied social psychology combines the science of social psychology with the practical application of solving social problems that exist in the real world. This exciting textbook provides a thorough explanation of how social psychologists can contribute to the understanding and management of different social problems. A highly prestigious team of contributors from across Europe and the United States illustrate how social psychological theories, research methods and intervention techniques can be successfully applied to social problems encountered in the fields of physical and mental health, integration and immigration issues, gender issues, organizational issues, economic behaviour, political behaviour, environmental behaviour and education. Each field studied features an overview of important problems, the role of human behaviour in these problems, the factors influencing relevant behaviour, and effective ways to change this behaviour. This is an essential volume for all undergraduate and graduate students studying applied social psychology.

Together with Angela Ruepert (1ste author) and Linda Steg, I have a chapter in “The Psychology of green organizations” on stimulating pro-environmental behavior in employees

Editors:

Jennifer Robertson / Julian Barling

Book summary

As we move further into the 21st century, the global challenges and consequences posed by climate change are becoming increasingly apparent. Although organizations are considered significant contributors to climate change, they also have the potential to positively affect it through their employees. As a result, understanding how employees’ pro-environmental initiatives can positively affect climate change has increasingly become the focus of inquiry among organizational researchers. The Psychology of Green Organizations brings together a number of these researchers to review leading research in different areas of organizational environmental sustainability. In so doing, this book consolidates available knowledge on employees’ contributions to corporate environmental initiatives, stimulates future empirical research on this topic, and provides recommendations for how organizations can improve their environmental performance through their employees. Many chapters provide case examples of environmentally sustainable organizations to illustrate lessons gleaned from research. Chapters in part 1 provide a conceptual, theoretical, and methodological foundation for research on workplace pro-environmental behaviors, while those in parts 2 and 3 review research on the promotion of workplace pro-environmental behaviors at the individual and organizational levels, respectively. Part 4 explores one organization that has been successful at promoting employees’ environmental initiatives, highlighting how both organizational and individual factors can be used to effect major changes in corporate environmental sustainability.

Boek samenvatting

Hoe kiezen mensen uit de vele mogelijkheden waarvoor zij zich iedere dag opnieuw gesteld zien? In dit boek geven vooraanstaande Nederlandse wetenschappers uit diverse disciplines een helder overzicht van de meest recente kennis over menselijk keuzegedrag. Daarbij gaan zij uitgebreid in op de grote invloed van de omgeving en de rol van het onbewuste. Bovendien komen de nieuwste inzichten uit de neurobiologie aan bod.

Dit boek is bedoeld voor iedereen die zich bezighoudt met menselijk keuzegedrag en de vraag hoe dat kan worden beinvloed. Hoe kunnen mensen bijvoorbeeld worden verleid tot een gezondere levensstijl? Tot energiebesparend gedrag? Tot een verstandige financiele planning? De wetenschappers in deze bundel bieden nieuwe en veelbelovende perspectieven voor antwoorden op dit soort vragen.
