The interactive effects of moral identity and moral disengagement on doping: An experimental investigation

Resource description

Project/Report Title: The interactive effects of moral identity and moral disengagement on doping: An experimental investigation.

Researcher(s)/author(s):  Nicholas Stanger

Country: United Kingdom (UK)

Language: English

Year of funding/approval: 2015

This study will investigate the effects of manipulating moral disengagement to see whether this increases athletes’ likelihood to dope and overrides the usual self-regulatory role of emotion and judgment. In addition, this study will also determine whether athletes with a high moral identity are less susceptible to morally disengage and justify doping and thus, protect athletes from situations that may make them more likely to dope.
