We examined whether a friend’s advice to leave an abusive relationship would change depending on their motivational perspective and features of the relationship. MTurk workers (N=626) were assigned to a motivational manipulation, read a vignette, and gave advice to a hypothetical friend. Findings provide insight about factors that alter one’s readiness to give advice to leave abusive situations.
