    Resources and Adaptation Following Involuntary Resettlement in the Bytom-Karb Community.Augustyn Bańka, Katarzyna Popiołek, Małgorzata Wójcik & Igor Pietkiewicz - 2015 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 46 (1):15-25.
    Studies show that involuntary displacement often creates various threats for the community and individuals. To reduce these risks, Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, Health Impact Assessment, and Social Assessment are recommended. Whereas assessments focus mostly on the community level and studies describe cases of large population displacements, there is a lack of empirical evidence about how individuals cope with involuntary displacement and what factors contribute or hinder their successful adaptation in the target location. This study uses semi-structured interviews with 21 (...)

    From Polyanna Syndrome to Eeyore’s Corner? Hope and Pain in Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain.Katarzyna Popiołek, Łukasz Palt & Ewa Wojtyna - 2015 - Polish Psychological Bulletin 46 (1):96-103.
    Chronic low back pain affects 50-80% of the population, while its consequences may impair the functioning of patients suffering from it, in many spheres of life. Hope is a factor which may influence coping with pain as well as cognitive reflection of pain experience.

    The presented study explores the possibility of creating and implementing educational program which would reduce intergroup bias in realistic high school setting. The project was based on the assumption that there is the need of easily applicable, anti-prejudice intervention, which would be appropriate to introduce into foreign language course books, would be universal in terms of changing negative attitudes and would meet all methodological requirements of language lessons. Crossed categorization and the common ingroup identity model were used as theoretical basis (...)
