Pedagogy of emergency and vulnerability: testing of a Mental Skill Training protocol

Luigi Piceci, Anna Maria Mariani, Laura Cancellara, Luca Rossi

Abstract


Abstract (in italiano)

La ricerca proposta riguarda i filoni di studio della Pedagogia dell'emergenza e della vulnerabilità. Nel 2020, a causa della pandemia, la popolazione mondiale ha potuto provare cosa vuol dire vivere una situazione di emergenza e quanto questa possa aver inciso dal punto di vista pedagogico. In letteratura vi sono molte evidenze che testimoniano come tali situazioni possano essere vissute in modo più funzionale, se si è in grado di sfruttare le proprie risorse in termini di resilienza e di risposte adattive. Mai come in situazioni come questa la resilienza e l’anti-fragile sono concetti e risorse che assumono grande importanza (Piceci, Cancellara 2020; Taleb, 2013).

La resilienza è una struttura multidimensionale (Kumpfer 1999; Mariani, Marcolongo, Melchiori, Peluso Cassese, 2019) e, osservandone le varie componenti, l’equipe di ricerca ha costruito un protocollo di Mental Skill Training, mutuando tecniche e strumenti generalmente applicati in psicologia dello sport.

Lo studio sperimentale proposto ha testato un protocollo di Mental Skill Training su un panel di 16 studenti universitari della facoltà di psicologia, nell’arco di 6 settimane. L’obiettivo è stato quello di verificare l’impatto di tale protocollo su Autostima e senso di Autoefficacia, nonché su Resilienza e Strategie di coping.

Abstract (in inglese)

The proposed research concerns the study areas of Emergency and Vulnerability Pedagogy. In 2020, due to the pandemic, the world's population was able to experience what it is like to experience an emergency situation and how much it can impact from an educational point of view. There is ample evidence in the literature that such situations can be experienced in a more functional way if one is able to exploit one's resources in terms of resilience and adaptive responses. Never as in situations like these, resilience and anti-fragile are concepts and resources that assume great importance (Piceci, Cancellara 2020; Taleb, 2013).

Resilience is a multidimensional structure (Kumpfer 1999; Mariani, Marcolongo, Melchiori, Peluso Cassese, 2019) and, observing its various components, the research team has built a Mental Skill Training protocol, borrowing techniques and tools generally applied in sports psychology.

The proposed experimental study tested a Mental Skill Training protocol on a panel of 16 university students from the Faculty of Psychology, over a period of 6 weeks. The objective was to test how participation in this protocol could affect self-esteem and sense of self-efficacy, as well as Resilience and Coping Strategies.
