This is part 2 of a 2 part series where Bill Reel and Dr. Kristy Money discuss confirmation bias, the backfire effect, and how understanding these concepts can help you avoid hurtful behaviors between those who are journeying away from orthodoxy and their believing friends/family. There are references to different podcasts mentioned in the episode and you can find at the end of this post.
Lastly, in conjunction with the release of this episode, we are publishing a new e-book titled “How People Change Their Minds About Religion: Do’s and Don’ts”. It is provided as a free resource by the Healthy Mormon Journeys Foundation and can be downloaded at hmjfoundation.org/materials.
