Two-Sided Messages For Health Risk Prevention: the Role of Argument Type, Refutation and Issue Ambivalence

The present experimental research extends message sidedness literature to a health prevention context. Second, it addresses not only rational, but also affective two-sided messages. Third, this research explains a gap in message sidedness literature by addressing the impact of issue ambivalence on the effectiveness of refutational versus non-refutational two-sided messages.
