This study analyzed how intervention factors influence attitudes, perspective taking, and empathy towards people with schizophrenia. A total of 123 participants observed another person experience a simulated auditory hallucinations while completing tasks. Forty-three participants experienced the auditory hallucinations; 38 experienced the auditory hallucinations and the person's reactions, and 42 watched the simulation without either context. The experimental condition did not influence attitudes, perspective taking, and empathy towards people with schizophrenia. However, gender differences for these measures were observed. Therefore, future studies should examine how gender and factors of interventions impact attitudes, perspective taking, and empathy towards people with schizophrenia.
