Self-Concept Orientations and Modeling Observations of Delinquent Males through Talk/Film Sessions.
Gill, Walter Arthur
This study investigated the effects of viewing motion picture films depicting black models with accompanying discussions upon the self concept of delinquent males. The various dimensions of the self concept observed were esteem; social interest; identification with mother, father, teacher, friend; group identification; group identification with parent; egocentricity; and power, complexity, and individuation. The talk/film group was also compared to a self-directed group of delinquent males who videotaped, viewed the same films, and engaged in discussions, and to a group of delinquent males who only videotaped. The talk/film group attained significant differences on all self concept dimensions with the exception of identification with father and complexity. When groups were compared, significant differences were attained between the talk/film and self-directed groups on identification with father; the talk/film and videotaping groups on identification with friend; and between the talk/film and videotape groups on egocentricity. Thirty-five references are listed. (Author/LLS)
