Picture Task: Family Problems
The main aim of the picture task is to record rich data about a wide range of categories relevant to psycho-social cognition, including both narrative and interactive material. A focus within this is to elicit data that includes a high amount of speech and thought reporting, reference to emotion, and/or is collected in situations of explicit knowledge symmetry and asymmetry (i.e., where it is clear to all that the speech event participants do/do not all have access to the same information simultaneously). Material from the picture task can contribute to a wide range of studies, for example concerning comparative narratology, information structure, cultural tropes, and the effects of rehearsal on performance, among many others.

Picture Task: Crow and Jackal
This resource has been created as an elicitation stimulus with similar aims to the “family problems” task used by the Social Cognition research group. That is, to record rich data about a wide range of categories relevant to psycho-social cognition. This task is designed to be used with children, although there is nothing preventing it from being used with older people as well. It is shorter and less open ended as well as being more suitable in subject matter for younger people. It is less focused on participant interaction, but still aims to gather data on speech and though reporting. Images and instructions are archived here. Keywords: Elicitation; Crow and Jackal Story
