Learning more about the “I and We” in Stress
On Wednesday 19 February Rolf Van Dick, Professor of Social Psychology at Goethe University in Frankfurt, Germany, visited the Institute of Work Psychology (IWP) at Sheffield University Management School to give a talk about social identity and stress.
Drawing from years of research and hundreds of studies, he concluded that what we perceive as stressful is clearly related to the standards of the group we are part of. His talk attracted a great deal of interest and a lively discussion from a crowd of researchers – staff and students alike. IWP is looking forward to future collaborations with Professor Van Dick’s team.
He spoke as part of the School’s Distinguished Speaker Series.
