A Framework of Narrative Persuasion

We develop a framework to organize narrative persuasion research, exploring the relations between input variables (e.g., narrative format) to primary (e.g., emotion) and secondary (e.g. self-referencing) mediating processes, to persuasion-related outcome variables (e.g. attitude change). We also incorporate relevant moderators (e.g. need for affect).
