M.Sc. Psychologie Marlene Batzke

Research Interest
Being a social and environmental psychologist, I am particularly interested in how people deal with internal and external conflict situations. How do people handle attitude-behavior discrepancies, contradictions and ambivalences? How do they behave in dilemma situations? I focus on the processes of norm and value development and their change - within individuals as well as with regard to social change in societies. How do the changing environmental demands and the personal response to them influence the individual’s self-image? These processes are of particular relevance with regard to the challenges of the environmental and climate crisis and the associated socio-ecological transformation.
