Bandura's Bobo Doll Experiment - Video

Bandura's Bobo Doll Exerpiment is both a classic in observation learning and a study high school psychology students find intriguing. While descriptions and pictures can tell much of the story, an actual video clip brings the experiment to life.

An online 5:02 minute video clip exists which includes Bandura explaining the overall experiment followed by short clips of the adult model and then the children imitating the behavior with Bandura explaining each segment.

I've included a number of links to the video as it seems to appear and then disappear from many websites. The sites which at one time included the video, now state it was removed due to copyright concerns from the Pennsylvania State University.






To find the original journal article from The Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology (1961) by Bandura, Ross and Ross go to http://psychclassics.yorku.ca/Bandura/bobo.htm
