Overcoming the nocebo effect - a radical approach to citizenship education
Leighton, R. 2013. Overcoming the nocebo effect - a radical approach to citizenship education. International Journal of Education for Social Justice. 2 (1).
This paper begins with a discussion of recent evidence regarding the state of Citizenship Education in England, proposing that there are indications of a nocebo effect – where an intervention has detrimental effects which outweigh any potential benefits. It is then argued that a more radical approach to Citizenship Education than is currently generally apparent is required in order to alleviate and reverse the trend towards a nocebo effect, going on to briefly outline a number of strategies through which such an objective might be achieved and identifying one school example of such practices. Finally some observations are offered regarding the consequences of ignoring the current situation.
