Psychology Student Explores the Healing Power of Digital Storytelling

Psychology Student Explores the Healing Power of Digital Storytelling | community psychology | Scoop.it
Virgil Moorehead, a psychology student in California, is studying digital storytelling and how it can help with Native historic trauma and healing.

 

“Red Moon” is one of nearly 70 digital shorts through which clients and staff of the Native American Health Center in Oakland, California have told their stories, and psychology intern Virgil Moorehead, 31, believes they are not only a way for Native people to control the narratives about their people but can serve to heal the scars of intergenerational trauma.

 

“Helping Natives tell these stories can help break the conspiracy of silence, the way we’re not talking about these issues,” said Moorehead, who is Yurok, Tolowa and an enrolled member of the Big Lagoon Rancheria. “It can help with the shame, guilt and depression that is so prevalent in Indian country.”

Compassion Summer Research Institute Thanks - Editor: The Science of Compassion Summer Research Institute hosted by the Telluride Institute and CCARE | community psychology | Scoop.it

The Science of Compassion Summer Research Institute, hosted by the Telluride Institute and Stanford’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education, was successful in bringing together promising graduate students from psychology, neuroscience, and the health fields in effort to deepen understanding of compassion, altruism, mindfulness, and pro-social qualities. Students were exposed to the latest research and identified future directions of study with accomplished faculty members from prestigious universities and institutions. Thank you to everybody who made the SRI a huge success. Specifically, we would like to thank Tim Erdman for his deep generosity in housing the SRI students, the Wilkinson Public Library for their kind efforts in accommodating the SRI, Carmella and the Rustico staff for their late-night warm hospitality and delicious food.

Tara Gregory on Using Storytelling to Help Organizations Develop Logic Models

I’m Tara Gregory, Research and Evaluation Coordinator for Wichita State University’s Center for Community Support and Research (CCSR). CCSR works with non-profit, community and faith-based organizations across Kansas and was originally supported through the Community Psychology graduate program at Wichita State University. Many of our staff members, myself included, are graduates of this program so we’ve maintained a strong community psychology orientation in our principles and practices. Given the principle of meeting people where they are, we often use forms of storytelling to help organizations develop logic models

Social Cognitive Theory

Social Cognitive Theory | community psychology | Scoop.it

History and Orientation

In 1941 Miller and Dollard proposed the theory of social learning. In 1963 Bandura and Walters broadened the social learning theory with the principles of observational learning and vicarious reinforcement. Bandura provided his concept of self-efficacy in 1977, while he refuted the traditional learning theory for understanding learning.

The Social Cognitive Theory is relevant to health communication. First, the theory deals with cognitive, emotional aspects and aspects of behavior for understanding behavioral change. Second, the concepts of the SCT provide ways for new behavioral research in health education. Finally, ideas for other theoretical areas such as psychology are welcome to provide new insights and understanding.

Core Assumptions and Statements

The social cognitive theory explains how people acquire and maintain certain behavioral patterns, while also providing the basis for intervention strategies (Bandura, 1997). Evaluating behavioral change depends on the factors environment, people and behavior. SCT provides a framework for designing, implementing and evaluating programs.

Environment refers to the factors that can affect a person’s behavior. There are social and physical environments. Social environment include family members, friends and colleagues. Physical environment is the size of a room, the ambient temperature or the availability of certain foods. Environment and situation provide the framework for understanding behavior (Parraga, 1990). The situation refers to the cognitive or mental representations of the environment that may affect a person’s behavior. The situation is a person’s perception of the lace, time, physical features and activity (Glanz et al, 2002).

Hannah Weaver's curator insight, February 19, 2015 3:19 PM

Cognitive theory is about the emotional part of behavioral change. Environmental changes influence this theory. These environments include anything that influences people.  These environments model for the people. The model above show how all these relate to each other.
