Environmental Identity, Empathy and Environmental Concern: Interrelation Study
Прикладная социальная психология
Current Thesis is dedicated to modern, yet already complex area of environmentalism. The field of environmentalism is speckled with new theories, outlooks and research data, which, due to its recency, have not yet developed a comprehensive and well-orchestrated paradigm. The present study provides insight on major theoretical attempts to explain one of the core phenomena of ecological psychology: environmental concern. Moreover, current work connects environmentalism with a previously neglected construct of dispositional empathy with nature in attempt to investigate relations between three core constructs: Environmental concern, environmental identity and empathy. The empirical part of the research puts to the test several hypotheses and research questions, based on most contradictory data from literature sources: relations between environmental concern and demographic parameters, personal values, environmental identity, social and environmental empathy. Present study also provides the Russian adaptation of research instruments that are globally approved for studying environmental concern, which were tested on Russian sample.
