4 febbraio 2019, Seminario “The Centrality of Morality in Group Processes: A Social Identity Approach”
Il Dipartimento di Psicologia dei Processi di Sviluppo e Socializzazione organizza il seminario "The Centrality of Morality in Group Processes: A Social Identity Approach", a cura del Prof. Stefano Pagliaro, Dipartimento di Neuroscienze Imaging e Scienze Cliniche, Università degli Studi "G.d’Annunzio" Chieti-Pescara.
In the last decade social psychologists have displayed a growing interest in examining morality - what people consider right and wrong. The majority of work in this area has addressed this as an individual-level issue, examining how selfish and/or aggressive impulses are suppressed in moral decision making, or how moral judgments affect interpersonal impression formation. In a 13-years, still ongoing, research program, together with Italian and foreign colleagues I tried to complement this work by introducing a group-level analysis of morality. We propose that taking into account social identity processes helps understand how adherence to moral standards may be functional as a way to improve group-level conceptions of self. In this seminar, I review the above mentioned research program in which we have investigated the importance of morality for group-level identities by demonstrating (a) the centrality of moral judgments for a positive evaluation of the ingroup and (b) the importance of moral norms in intragroup behavioural regulation. Moreover, I present novel evidence about the role of the moral considerations in guiding leader-followers relation as well as in determining employees’ positive and negative reactions to work climate.
