A Structural Mediation Model Predicting Invisible Disability Prejudice


Previous research has shown contact with invisible disabilities, such as HIV, can greatly reduce prejudice (Carter et al., 2006; Davis, 2005; Pitkin Derose et al., 2016). Additional research has shown a relationship between group membership, compassion, and emotional state (Oveis, Horberg, & Keltner, 2010). A structural model was configured with four latent variables. Inner turmoil was used to directly to predict Invisible Disability Prejudice and callousness and alienation were proposed as mediators in the relationship.
