Perspectives On Video Self-confrontation

Wayne State University, Aug 2018

Video self-confrontation has been widely used for training and therapeutic interventions. Clients are videotaped then given an opportunity to view themselves via playback Early reviews of video self-confrontation studies noted the absence of an explicit, well developed theoretical rationale for application and evaluation of video playback techniques. This article discusses five theoretical perspectives on video self-confrontation, information processing; causal attribution, psychodynamic; objective self-awareness/self-discrepancies; and Mead's notion of self. Each calls attention to unique elements of video self-confrontation, with implications for clinical practice. Additionally, new questions raised by symbolic interactionism about the social nature of the experience of self-confrontation by video playback are suggested.
