Albert Bandura - Social Cognitive theory

Albert Bandura is arguably the most eminent living psychologist. His Social Cognitive theory has influenced many areas of inquiry: education, health sciences, social policy and psychotherapy among others. This film presents Dr. Bandura and footage from some of his best-known research such as the BoBo doll experiment, treatment for snake phobias and the use of television dramas to convey positive social messages. Dr. Bandura is a genial host for the film that also includes much footage from abroad showing the universality of his concepts including the analysis of personal efficacy and the social roots of moral behavior. (2003 38 minutes) (This is a 4-minute sample clip from the film) The film is part of the acclaimed GIANTS OF PSYCHOLOGY series from Davidson Films, Inc. that also introduces college students to the work and lives of Mary Ainsworth, John Dewey, Erik Erikson, Maria Montessori, Jean Piaget, B. F. Skinner and Lev Vygotsk
