Judy Eaton (PhD)
My research interests fall under the general category of social motivation in organizations. Specifically, I am interested in apology and forgiveness between coworkers (does how we feel about ourselves affect whether we choose to forgive others?), organizational cynicism, psychological contract violation, and data collection over the Internet.

I am interested in how people maintain a subjective sense of a meaningful world and personal efficacy in the face of an objectively indifferent universe.
