What is moral disengagement? An explanatory video

"How do people do harm and live with themselves" (Bandura, 2016)

Bandura's book's subtitle is quite self-explanatory when it comes to giving a sense of what moral disengagement is about. In this video, I talk about Bandura's model of moral disengagement, and the mechanisms people employ, according to this model, to perform activities which may cause harm to others, while retaining a sense of self-worth. I also explore moral disengagement in the corporate world using the example of the tobacco industry, and end with the state of the research and limitations of the model.

I hope you find the video interesting, and would love to hear your thoughts and feedback!
