Since its ascendency within persuasive communication research some five decades ago, the empirical approach to persuasion has dominated the scholarly landscape. While this social scientific approach contributed to the proliferation, predictability, and general acceptance of persuasive communication theories and practices, there is growing evidence that we are currently in the midst of a rhetorical revival.

Daniel J. O'Keefe (born 1950) is an American communication and argumentation theory scholar. He is the Owen L. Coon Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Northwestern University. His research concerns persuasion and argumentation, with a focus on meta-analytic synthesis of research concerning persuasive message effects.[1] This program of work often addresses the question of whether normatively good argumentation contributes to persuasive success.

Based on previous research, there appear to be a few ways to address self-efficacy in risk communication messages. For example, crisis communication scholars recommended providing instructions to help people to physically protect themselves (Coombs, 201916; Sturges, 199417). Additionally, Bandura (200118) argued that self-efficacy can be developed using vicarious experiences by social models (i.e., seeing social models who are similar to the audience perform the behavior), and social persuasion (i.e., encouraging an audience to engage in the behavior). Thus, this study also proposed a second hypothesis:
