Cognitive, affective, normative, and moral triggers of sustainable intentions among convention-goers
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Heesup Han, Jinsoo Hwang, Sanghyeop Lee Given that little research has considered cognitive, affective, normative, and moral drivers altogether in accounting for individuals' eco-friendly decisions, the present study addressed this omission in the convention industry by demonstrating the vital impact of such factors on attendees' environmentally responsible decision-making processes. Cognitive, affective, normative, and moral factors were found to play a significant role in the proposed...
Effects of park walks and relaxation exercises during lunch breaks on recovery from job stress: Two randomized controlled trials
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Jessica de Bloom, Marjaana Sianoja, Kalevi Korpela, Martti Tuomisto, Ansa Lilja, Sabine Geurts, Ulla Kinnunen Lunch breaks constitute the longest within-workday rest period, but it is unclear how they affect recovery from job stress. We conducted two randomized controlled trials with 153 Finnish knowledge workers who engaged for 15 min daily in prescribed lunch break activities for ten consecutive working days. Participants were randomly assigned to a: 1) park walking group...
“I feel it is mine!” – Psychological ownership in relation to natural resources
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): A. Matilainen, M. Pohja-Mykrä, M. Lähdesmäki, S. Kurki The use of natural resources often generates conflict among stakeholders. Conflict analysis and management in this sector has traditionally been based on compliance enforcement and/or education. Recently, however, the need for alternative approaches has been increasingly highlighted. In this study, we address the need for in-depth analysis, and introduce the theoretical concept of psychological ownership to improve the...
Predictors of visual attention to climate change images: An eye-tracking study
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Silja Sollberger, Thomas Bernauer, Ulrike Ehlert Attentional engagement with climate change is an important precondition for intentional climate-friendly behavior. However, not much is known about the determinants of an individuals' implicit willingness to attend to this global problem. This study investigates two potentially relevant predictors of implicit attention to climate change: a) pro-environmental orientation as a trait factor and b) experimentally induced stress as a state...
Effects of “hotspots” as a function of intrinsic neighborhood attractiveness
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Christophe Blaison, Mario Gollwitzer, Ursula Hess Would the positive effect of an urban park differ as a function of whether it is located in Beverly Hills or in South-Central? Would the negative effect of a noisy highway in Beverly Hills differ from its effect in South-Central? The present research investigates how changes in intrinsic neighborhood attractiveness modify the effects of intensely valenced locations – i.e., positive or negative “hotspots.” In two experiments...
Exploring the meaning of home for family caregivers of people with dementia
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Dia Soilemezi, Amy Drahota, John Crossland, Rebecca Stores, Alan Costall The home remains the preferred site for ageing and care provision, yet its role and meaning for caregivers remains under-studied. Thirteen co-resident family caregivers of people with dementia were interviewed about the personal meaning of their home environment. Interviews were recorded, transcribed and analysed using thematic analysis. The findings revealed that ‘home is everything’ for caregivers and...
Perceived residential environment of neighborhood and subjective well-being among the elderly in China: A mediating role of sense of community
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Zhen Zhang, Jianxin Zhang An accumulating body of literature has shown the influence of neighborhood environment on well-being. This study investigated the relationship between perceived neighborhood environment and subjective well-being and the mediating effect of a sense of community among Chinese elderly. Subjective well-being included four indicators: life satisfaction, meaning in life, positive affect, and negative affect. The Perceived Residential Environment Scale assessed physical...
Bright light exposure does not prevent the deterioration of alertness induced by sustained high cognitive load demands
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Guillermo Borragán, Gaétane Deliens, Philippe Peigneux, Rachel Leproult The present work investigated the effects of bright light exposure to prevent increased sleepiness and decreased alertness induced by a dual working memory task in which high cognitive demands (HCL) are adapted to the individual's maximal capacity. In a randomized cross-over study, twenty participants were exposed to two sessions that included 20 min of light exposure (dim light or bright light). Subjective...
Creating a climate for change: Interventions, efficacy and public discussion about climate change
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Nathaniel Geiger, Janet K. Swim, John Fraser Interpersonal discussions about climate change among the public are important for creating positive social change to addressing the issue, yet a majority of the public does not regularly discuss the topic. Previous correlational research connects avoidance of climate change discussions to low efficacy about these discussions. The present research tests whether a knowledge-based intervention which 1) uses evidence-based communication techniques...
Minimizing the gender difference in perceived safety: Comparing the effects of urban back alley interventions
01. August 2017
Publication date: August 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 51 Author(s): Bin Jiang, Cecilia Nga Sze Mak, Linda Larsen, Hua Zhong Urban alleys are perceived as unsafe, especially by women. We conducted a photograph-questionnaire survey to examine gender difference in perceived safety of alley scenes. Photograph simulation technology was used to create three categories of intervention scenes: Cleaning, Vegetation, and Urban Function & Vegetation. For the existing (Baseline) and Cleaning scenes, perceived safety remained low for both genders, though...

Tailored information helps people progress towards reducing their beef consumption
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Christian A. Klöckner, Sunita Prugsamatz Ofstad Stage-based theories of behavior change predict that people should have a different need for information in various stages. We tested this assumption in three studies on reduction of beef consumption on Norwegian samples. An information website was developed providing information on why and how to reduce beef consumption. In Study 1 (N=389), user behavior on this website was analyzed depending on the stage of change. It was found that people...
Experiential and instrumental attitudes: Interaction effect of attitude and subjective norm on recycling intention
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Calvin Wan, Geoffrey Qiping Shen, Stella Choi Prior studies have identified key factors that influence recycling intention. However, these studies rarely pay attention to the interaction of attitude and subjective norm that influences recycling intention. This study applied a conceptual model by extending the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) for addressing the gap. The study collected 246 responses through a street survey in Hong Kong. Findings revealed that two interaction terms (i.e...
Sustainable water consumption: The perspective of Hispanic consumers
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Jiyun Kang, Kaitlin Grable, Gwendolyn Hustvedt, Mira Ahn This study aims to explore the role of Hispanic consumers' beliefs on water, drought and relevant resources in shaping their perceptions, self-reported behavior, and behavioral intention toward sustainable water consumption that embraces not only habitual activities of water conservation but also proactive actions that consumers take in their purchase decisions. We developed a comprehensive model depicting how water beliefs...
Seeing change and being change in the world: The relationship between lay theories about the world and environmental intentions
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Monica Soliman, Anne E. Wilson Scientists predict that climate change will cause substantial changes to life on our planet, and that human behavior should change substantially in order to mitigate its impact. Hence, we propose that lay theories of change are among the psychological factors that can influence pro-environmental engagement. We predicted that people who think of the world as relatively stable will be more likely to be skeptical about anthropogenic climate change. They should...
Individual differences in collectivism predict city identification and city evaluation in Australian, French, and Turkish cities
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Mark Rubin, Constantina Badea, Jenna Condie, Yara Mahfud, Tessa Morrison, Müjde Peker Collectivism is a sociocultural variable that predicts how people relate to social groups. Cities are social groups. Hence, collectivism should predict how people relate to cities. To test this prediction, the researchers sampled 1660 residents of four cities in three countries. Participants completed an online survey containing measures of collectivism, city identification, and city evaluation...
Housing and neighborhood physical quality: Children's mental health and motivation

Space appropriation and place attachment: University students create places
01. Juni 2017
Publication date: June 2017 Source:Journal of Environmental Psychology, Volume 50 Author(s): Liliane Rioux, Fabrizio Scrima, Carol M. Werner “Appropriation” has been studied as a mechanism by which space is transformed into place. The present research tested two models of appropriation and place attachment among university students (n = 247), one in their university's neighborhood and the other in Paris as a whole. In both models, the relation between time spent in the setting and attachment to the setting was mediated by students' appropriating behaviors (the mean of three...
