A Picture Is Worth...: Video Self-Modeling Applications at School and Home
Buggey, Tom
Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions, v9 n3 p151-158 2007
Video self-modeling (VSM) is a relatively new technique for modifying and training behaviors and has accumulated a relatively impressive track record in the research literature. Using only positive examples, VSM gives persons the opportunity to view themselves performing a task just beyond their present functioning level via creative editing of videos using VCRs or video software. In this article, the author provides instructions on the two primary video-taping strategies for collecting content for self-modeling movies. These are accompanied by case studies illustrating the entire self-modeling process, from selecting behaviors to viewing the videos. The author conducted the case studies in his work with the Restructuring for Inclusive Environments technical assistance project. Suggested applications and caveats on the use of VSM are also presented. (Contains 1 figure.)
