How do people manage and defend their self-image in the face of threats?


David Nussbaum is a social psychologist who focuses on how people respond to threats to their self-image, how this affects their beliefs and behavior, and how social contexts and psychological processes can either attenuate threats to self-image or exacerbate them. He is also the editor of Character & Context, the blog of the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP).
