A Study of the Effectiveness of Self Appraisal of Children's Behavior Through the Use of Video-Tape. Final Report.
A study was made of the use of audio-video taping technique with elementary school students in a counseling-type situation to facilitate the children's growth in the following areas: self-reliance, sense of personal worth, sense of personal freedom, feeling of belonging, social skills, and school relations. Subjects were divided into an experimental group and two control groups. The experimental group of children were videotaped in school situations and viewed this tape in an individual counseling-type setting. Children in control group I received individual attention in a counseling-type setting. Children in control group II received no special treatment. A personality test and a student attitude scale were used to collect data. No significant results were found to exist in relation to treatment, indicating that videotaped self-confrontation may not be useful in counseling elementary school students. (JY)
