"Wise Intervention:  A Social Identity Threat Approach to
Understanding and Reducing Intergroup Disparities".


Persistent threats to people's social identity--such as
negative stereotypes targeted at their group--can contribute to
intergroup disparities in education and health. The
manifestations of this process in laboratory and real-world
educational settings will be explored.  A model of how social
identity threat unfolds over long periods of time will be presented.
Based on this model, several randomized field experiments will
demonstrate that leveraged psychological interventions ("wise"
interventions) can reduce intergroup disparities and yield lasting
benefits, particularly for educational outcomes.  Finally the talk
will explore how and when the effects of social-psychological
interventions propagate over time.
