Dear SPSP community,

I want to share with you my TED talk – How to Speak Up for Yourself. The talk intermixes personal stories with numerous social psych studies. It discusses the role of power in speaking up, presents the idea of the low-power double bind, and offers several tips for speaking up with less resistance and backlash, from advocating for others to perspective-taking to offering choice to asking for advice to being passionate. The talk was released last Wednesday and was the most viewed talk on TED.com last week. I thought you all would enjoy seeing social psychology up on the big/little screen!

Best,

Adam
