Struggling with cultural prejudice while observing babies. Socio-centric and egocentric positions
Music, Graham (2010) Struggling with cultural prejudice while observing babies. Socio-centric and egocentric positions. Infant Observation: The International Journal of Infant Observation and Its Applications, 13 (2). pp. 189-208. ISSN 1369-8036Full text not yet available from this repository.
This paper describes the challenge that different cultural beliefs about parenting pose for the practice of infant observation and direct clinical work. In particular it discusses the distinction between egocentric and socio-centric cultural views, how cultural presuppositions infuse our understanding and perception, and how hard it is not to judge others as a result of our own cultural beliefs and biases.
