This study focuses on self-efficacy as a potential moderator of the effects of gain- and loss-framed health messages. Undergraduate students (N = 124) received a gain- or loss-framed message about consuming ecological meat. The data revealed that for participants high in self-efficacy, the gain-framed message resulted in consuming more ecological meat than the loss-framed message. Moreover it was found that — within the gain-frame condition — participants low in self-efficacy scored higher on measures of defensive processing than participants high in self-efficacy. This study provides further evidence for the role of self-efficacy as a potential moderator of the effects of framed health messages.
