Research Group "Moral Courage"
Dr. Anna Baumert

This Research Group is dedicated to investigate the psychological processes of bystander intervention against norm violations, also termed moral courage (Zivilcourage). Research approaches from personality and social psychology are combined to understand dispositional and situational determinants of intervention. Empirical strategies involve, but are not limited to, observation studies in the lab, comparisons of extreme groups (exemplars), ambulatory assessment methods, and multi-method assessment.
