Kende et al., 2018: Talking about personal matters with Roma students increased positive attitudes towards them among Hungarian students over 2 or 6 weeks over
Hungarian undergraduate students had a 60-minute one-on-one conversation with a Roma student in which each person took turns asking and answering questions that required increasing levels of self-disclosure (e.g., “What is your biggest fear in life?”). As compared to a baseline assessment (2 or 6 weeks earlier), this treatment led students to express more positive attitudes toward Roma students and greater intentions to interact with Roma students socially in the future 5 weeks later. No such change was observed for students in a control condition. There was no effect on beliefs about Roma students. The effect on more attitudes was greater the more students perceived anti-prejudice norms.
