Selfie Empowerment: The Positive Side of Selfies

1,689 views

Published on

Presentation from American Psychological Association National Convention 2015 by Pamela Rutledge, PhD.

We live in the age of selfies. Is this a problem? No. On the contrary, selfies are instant visual communication, focusing on the process of life. They 'speak' to our brains on an emotional level, transmitting not just text but experience. They are also a new visual genre, distinct from all others in history. Portraiture is no longer restricted to the rich and famous and, for the first time in history, we are completely in charge of our own image. Selfies can be empowering and positive, inspiring personal change, increasing mindfulness and gratitude and enhancing social connection.

  45. 45. 2015 APA Annual Convention AUGUST 6-9, 2015 TORONTO, ONTARIO UNDERTHESELFIE I always try to edit the perfect selfie. I try to remove the acne or skin marks or flyaway hairs in an attempt to portray myself in a film like glorification of my life. It is a way to translate my image of myself to people who only see me through unfiltered eyes. I do not ignore that my appearance is imperfect, I just show my personality bleeding through the blemishes to make an outwardly beautiful person to reflect what I hope is a kind soul I have inside.
