Family Communication and Facilitation

Slide 13

Criticisms of Olson's Model Lack of confirmation for curvilinear connections of versatility and union with working "Correspondence" to a great extent underconceptualized

Slide 16

Dimensions of Culture Hofstede independence cooperation manliness womanliness control separate Hall Context Space & time Control-capitulation to the inevitable

Slide 17

Correlates of Culture Demographics Family measure & sythesis SES Values & Beliefs Religion Political introduction Gender parts

Slide 18

4 Theoretical Approaches Systems Theory Symbolic Interactionism Attachment Theory Dialectic Theory

Slide 19

Communication Systems Wholeness : Complete relationship of parts Nonsummativity : System is more than total of parts Openness : Systems don't exist in disconnection Equifinality : Outcomes are not pre-dictated by sources of info Hierarchy : Systems connect with different frameworks

Slide 20

Evaluation of Systems Theory Strengths Emphasis on entire family & association Clarification of part of outer variables Weakness Complexity and association make testable speculations troublesome or outlandish

Slide 21

Symbolic Interactionism Humans capacity to interface typically with each other is their characterizing trademark and has vital ramifications for Meaning, Language, and Thought. (Mead, 1934)

Slide 22

Core Concepts of Symbolic Interactionism Meaning Root source of human conduct Arises from human cooperation Language Social images, holders of significance Thought Symbolic, Reflective & Perspective Taking

Slide 23

Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis a.k.a. Phonetic Determinism Thought relies on upon dialect Ungrammatical thought or thought w/o vocabulary is unimaginable Consequently, our dialect figures out what and how we think

Slide 24

Examples of Language Independent Thought Emotions (outrage, abhor, love, and so on.) Visualizations Spatial Orientation Pre-verbal Infants Inability to articulate a thought Memories of sounds, scents, torment, and so forth

Slide 25

Sapir-Whorf and Reality Most considered autonomous dialect Even if thought somehow managed to rely on upon dialect, dialect is generative Appearance of thought=language consequence of dialect offices checking thought for prompt correspondence

Slide 26

Attachment The Strong Bond between Infant & Primary Care Giver Innate (imparted to numerous different creatures) Necessary for Survival & Development Characterized by Multi-Stage Reaction to Separation

Slide 27

Attachment (cont.) Necessary for Survival & Development Secure Base Function Save Haven Function Characterized by Multi-Stage Reaction to Separation: Protest Despair Detachment Rebound from Detachment

Slide 28

Ainsworth's Attachment Styles ( dictated by Strange Situation ) Secure - quickly resentful, then glad & fulfilled Avoidant - no passionate reaction, then maintain a strategic distance from mother Anxious/Ambivalent - exceptionally annoyed, then at first avoidant

Slide 29

PCG's Behavior and Infant's Attachment Style Reliably Available  Secure Attachment Reliably Unavailable  Avoidant Attachment Unreliably Available/Over Involved  Anxious/Ambivalent Attachment

Slide 30

Kobak's Attachment Dimensions Secure Dismissing Preoccupied Dismissing Avoidant Preoccupied Insecure

Slide 31

Bartholomew's Four Attachment Styles Model of Self _ + Preoccupied Secure Model Of Other _ Fearful Avoidant Dismissive

Slide 32

Infant Complementary Parent or Other Adult Exploration System effectively overpowered Adult Reciprocal Peer & Sexual Partner Separation must be disjoin to evoke connection like response Comparing Infant and Adult Attachment

Slide 33

Relational Dialectics Unlike Hegelian Dialectics, no synthetical determination Most urgent in 3 measurements Affiliation Predictability Intimacy Dialectics are inner & outside

Slide 34

INTERNAL Connectedness – Separateness Certainty – Uncertainty Openness – Closedness EXTERNAL Inclusion – Seclusion Conventionality – Uniqueness Revelation – Concealment Internal & External Dialectics

Slide 35

More Functional Spiraling Alteration Segmentation Integration Reaffirmation Less Functional Denial Disorientation Balance Recalibration Responses to Dialectics

Slide 36

Ways of Learning Classical Conditioning Operant Conditioning Social Learning

Slide 37

Classical Conditioning Before: CS -/ - > R; UCS - > R Conditioning: UCS + CS - > R After: CS - > R CS = Conditional Stimulus UCS = Unconditional Stimulus R = Response

Slide 38

Operant Conditioning Associating conduct with a result through support Reinforcement positive = nearness of result negative = nonappearance of result Outcome positive = attractive (reward) negative = undesirable (discipline)

Slide 39

Social Learning Associating conduct with a result through perception Observation of nearness/nonattendance of positive & negative results endorsement/objection to conduct by socialization specialists (incl. huge others)

Slide 40

Children's Learning Children learn in every one of the 3 ways Because social learning requires broad intellectual portrayals of social world, social learning is reliant on kid's psychological improvement

Slide 41

Active versus Latent Learning Passive Learning center of customary learning hypotheses how condition is organized figures out what is found out Active Learning center of social learning hypothesis how learner develops (sees) condition figures out what is found out
