Given the extent of inequality in the world, it is surprising that protests are rare. It seems that even those who are not happy with the sociopolitical institutions and arrangements on which they depend do not participate in protests. Why do individuals who are dissatisfied with the system do not engage in efforts to create social change?

The aim of the research is to delineate factors that predict psychopathology among children with cancer and their parents. In line with central theories of emotional disorders, they focus on cognitive biases in processing threat-related information, and specifically biased attention and memory. To investigate whether these biases contribute to the maintenance of emotional difficulties beyond the immediate effects of illness, they also assess children in remission and their parents. Thus, three groups of children and their parents are assessed: children in the active phase of cancer treatment, children in remission, and healthy controls. Identifying links between cognitive biases and psychopathology might help in applying strategies of psychological interventions that could modify such biases and contribute to the well-being of these children and their parents.
