<p>Menatti, A., Smyth, F. L., Teachman, B. A., & Nosek, B. A. (2013). Reducing stigma toward individuals with mental illnesses: A brief, online manipulation. <em>Stigma Research and Action</em>.</p> <p><strong>Abstract</strong></p> <p><strong>Purpose</strong>: Our goal was to determine the effectiveness of a brief online intervention designed to reduce stigmarelevant attitudes toward mentally ill individuals. We examined whether the experience of completing a Brief Implicit Association Test (BIAT) measuring attitudes toward people with mental illnesses alters explicit stigma in two studies.</p> <p><strong>Methods</strong>: In Study 1, participants completed the BIAT and received feedback about their individual level of implicit bias. Study 2 added a condition in which the BIAT was administered without feedback on performance.</p> <p><strong>Results</strong>: Study 1 showed that the intervention was effective in reducing stigma-relevant attitudes toward mentally ill individuals. Study 2 showed that receiving feedback about one’s own implicit bias was not necessary for the intervention to reduce stigma.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion</strong>: These studies show that the BIAT intervention may be effective at reducing explicit stigmatizing attitudes toward individuals with mental illnesses, at least in the short-term. Implications: This brief, accessible, and cost-effective stigma reduction strategy may be of use to community organizations whose mission is to address issues surrounding stigmatization in real-world settings.</p>
