Conditionnement évaluatif : apports méthodologiques et réflexion cliniques

Abstract : Evaluative Conditioning (EC) is a change in liking of a neutral stimulus (conditioned stimulus, CS) resulting from its association with an emotional stimulus (Unconditioned stimulus, US). In the present thesis we investigate EC using a functional approach. After a general presentation of EC, we focus on both describing and operationalizating new experimental procedures corresponding to each typical phase of an EC experiment: Learning, Measurement and Modification.First, we describe a new learning procedure using motion as USs. Second, we investigate a new measure of EC that we have called the Semi Implicit Task that assess attitude toward CSs. Finally, we investigate the modification of acquired valences with methodologies based on interventions with and without the use of verbal information.Within this general perspective, we discuss both theoretical implications and practical applications of EC. Regarding the second point, we shed light on potential applications in the domain of clinical psychology.
