      [Examiner - opinion]

      A new trend in welfare reform is the reliance on social psychology to
      support a regulatory approach. Groups like Vegan Outreach and Farm
      Sanctuary draw on social psychology theory to make it appear as if
      they are grounding their stances and actions in scientific research.
      But, in actuality, they are pulling on research to support what they
      already do. It’s no surprise then, that welfare reform is not
      achieving any meaningful change despite foundations in several decades
      of social psychological research. This is an unfortunate waste of a
      truly valuable tool. Social psychology does have much to say in how we
      might effectively advocate, but welfare organizations only twist the
      findings to support their favored (but failing) tactics.
