- Effect of the differential discount value on the purchase prediction: an approach from associative learningpor Liliana Yamile Rodríguez González el julio 26, 2022 a las 4:00 am
The purpose of this study was to explore the effect of changing the context in which a product with different discount values has been associated with purchase prediction. Participants were trained in a learning task where they had to predict the probability of a result (purchase of a product) based on different images (products), presented in different contexts (stores). In store A, product X associated with different discount values (50%, 30%, 0%) and the product Z associated with a constant discount (30%) were presented. In store B, product Y was presented without discount (0%). Control products without discount were presented in each context (F1 and F2). The results indicate that the differential discount value is context dependent, which means that the probability of purchase is greater when the product with a variable discount is presented in the same store where the association with multiple discounts was previously learned. This effect was less with the product with constant discount and was not observed in the product without discount. The implications of these findings are discussed considering the effectiveness of discount promotional strategies in stores.
- The organizations of psychologists in Argentina and the kidnapping and disappearance of Beatriz Perosio, victim of state terrorismpor Hugo Klappenbach el julio 26, 2022 a las 4:00 am
On August 8, 1978, Beatriz Perosio was kidnapped from the kindergarten where she worked in the Palermo neighborhood of Buenos Aires. At that time, Beatriz Perosio was President of the Association of Psychologists of Buenos Aires (APBA) and of the Federation of Psychologists of the Argentine Republic (FePRA), an institution that she herself had helped to organize a year earlier. The paper analyzes the actions carried out by the organizations of psychologists in the country after the kidnapping. To this end, it reconstructs the emergence and history of such organizations, especially the APBA, in which Perosio played a central role.
- Mapping Celso Pereira de Sá: Itineraries of his Intellectual Activity (1970-1990)por Roberta Garcia Alves el julio 26, 2022 a las 4:00 am
This proposal is characterized as a historical-conceptual research that aimed to identify publications of Celso Pereira de Sá linked to Behavior Analysis and to interpret conceptual and philosophical networks contained in these works, relating them to historiographical elements of his intellectual activity between 1970 and 1990. The methodological path was organized into two dimensions; one historiographic which used analysis of primary sources and another conceptual which have used Iramuteq software and appropriations of strategies of the Contextual Text Interpretation Procedure (PICT). We found an author reflecting upon the role of the intellectual and the production of scientific knowledge for solving eminently Brazilian social problems. Sá invested in popular political education in which the population would itself be able to produce knowledge about its reality and intervene in it. His concept of behavior is based on the understanding that the subject is necessarily a historical, social and verbal being. In addition, the concept of social counter-control indicates a transformation in society, highlighting the role of verbal behavior as a potential vehicle in the mobilization for social transformation.
- Treatment program for ex-jailed sex offenders in Uruguay: from knowledge to policy.por Raquel Galeotti el julio 26, 2022 a las 4:00 am
In this article, we discuss the process of implementing a pilot program of the treatment of sex offenders in Uruguay. We implemented an intervention-research based on the case study method delimited in terms of institutional and thematic scenarios; a national public institution whose main objective is the socio-labor and community inclusion of formerly incarcerated people. The data collection took place between February and October 2018, through group interviews with the technical team of the program and semi-structured interviews with the directorate. We present the analyzed theoretical and technical dimensions involved in the implementation of a community-based program for sexual offenders, according to two analytical lines: the specificity of the approach towards sexual offenders and the conceptions of the key institutional actors surrounding sexual violence.
- Psychology in the country of the future: The VI Interamerican Congress of Psychology (Rio de Janeiro, 1959)por Filipe Degani-Carneiro el julio 26, 2022 a las 4:00 am
This article analyses the historical conditions and effects of the VI Interamerican Congress of Psychology (VI ICP) held in Rio de Janeiro (1959). During the late 1950s, Brazil was going through a period of economic and cultural developmental euphoria and the emergence of a new image of Brazil to the world. It was also a period marked by the creation of the first undergraduate courses in Psychology (starting in 1953), as well as by the political negotiations that culminated in the legal regulation of the psychology profession (1962). The sources consulted were the Annals of the VI ICP, containing lists of participants and abstracts of the papers presented, as well as press publications that portrayed the media coverage of the congress. The VI ICP had an attendance of 409 persons from 13 countries, 254 women and 151 men, plus 4 unidentified people. The VI ICP was a milestone of impulse for Psychology as an emerging profession in Brazil, while the public repercussion of the event contributed both to the visibility of this science in the domestic environment and to the dissemination of the Brazilian psychological production at the continental level.
