256. The Contact Hypothesis and Reducing Prejudice

Description

This Psychology Factsheet provides guidance about how to describe and evaluate the role played by the contact hypothesis in helping to reduce prejudice to satisfy the criteria set out by the exam boards.

  • Use relevant research to support the points you make.
  • Evaluate this research by considering appropriate strengths and limitations.
