Albert Bandura’s Bobo Doll Experiments
Posted by The Situationist Staff on April 18, 2008
From Wikipedia: The Bobo doll experiment was conducted by Albert Bandura in 1961 and studied patterns of behaviour associated with aggression. Additional studies of this type were conducted by Bandura in 1963 and 1965. A Bobo doll is an inflatable toy that is approximately the same size as a prepubescent child. This experiment is important to psychology because it was a precedent that sparked many more studies about the effects of viewing violence on children. For details, click here.
