Description
Episode Description
This episode is "What's Right with Parents." Mrs. Rose Covert, chairman of the UPA Radio Committee, is joined by Mrs. Belle [Kosmidis] of Hunter College Elementary School and Mr. Edward Kopp of P.S. 89 the Bronx. "Brief information concerning each of these programs is attached and a transcription from each of the six Council series has been shipped under separate cover."--1947 Peabody Awards entry form excerpts. This is an episode from the program "We Human Beings". This program discusses different facets of social relations. This episode focuses on how to get someone to do their best work and the importance of the right kind of incentives, featuring Dr. Gordon W. Allport, Professor of Psychology in the Department of Social Relations at Harvard University. He is joined by students to ask questions that the viewers might want to ask. He says that punishment is a risky incentive that often has the opposite effect of what was intended because punishment builds up resentment. He says in some situations, mild punishment may be helpful, if it is accepted beforehand. Positive incentives are the most effective; praise elicits the best responses, but people must have knowledge of the results, whether they are doing well or not.
