dc.description.abstractPurpose of the Study To investigate the way in which threat, probability of occurrence and adequacy of defense information affect fear arousal and attitude change. A second purpose is to investigate the fear reducing effects which recommendations for prevention have on fear arousal and attitude change. Background Critical analysis of literature on fear arousal and attitude change (Janis and Feshbach, 1953, Haefner, 1959, Berkowitz and Cottingham, 1960) led to a threat, occurrence and defense formulation of conditions that lead to fear arousal and attitude change. Predictions based on the Janis and Feshbach study were applied to the study of this formulation. Also derived from this analysis of literature was the desirability of evaluating fear arousal separate from that which remains after the introduction of information intended to reduce fear [TRUNCATED]en_US
