People, especially younger children, are learning daily from their role models and the environment. Any type of behavior display socially is learned primarily by observing and imitating the actions of others. The social behavior is also influenced by being rewarded and/or punished for these actions.
What is one theory that influenced the development of the approach and how the theory helps describe behaviors
Each person is a social being and is aware of the environment that they live in. People learn from their experiences as well as from observing others. When children learn about their environment first hand or by observing another, negative and positive behaviors are reinforcement. If a child does a behavior and receives a reward for that behavior, the rewarded behavior is reinforced. Similarly, when someone witnesses negative consequences based on their behavior, they tend to modify that behavior (Schmied & Tully, 2009, p. 9).
behavioral control, we can predict with some accuracy that they will engage in the same behavior
All behavior is learnt from the environment. We learn new things new behavior through operant or classical conditioning.
Psychology is the study of the human mind and mental processes along with how they affect behaviour. Our behaviours have developed through evolution; a theory which was developed by Charles Darwin in the 1800s. The theory of evolution was the theory that animals and humans through natural selection have changed over generations to adapt to survive in a specific environment. The core assumptions are that as our physical characteristics have adapted over time, our behaviours have developed too because our genes influence our behaviour. For example, the ‘warrior gene’ – MAOA-L gene affects people’s behaviour by causing them to become more aggressive when provoked. Darwin’s theory can be applied to adaptive social behaviours in humans. Cuddling
Organisms will be inclined to comply to the desired response if they are rewarded for doing so. If an organism is punished for a certain behavior they will not risk the same punishment recurring.
-A person’s behavior can be influenced by observing others within the context of social interactions, experiences, and outside media influence.
normally happen with plants. Animals are usually under control and are conditioned to act right
The social learning theory suggests that people learn new behaviors through observation of factors in their environment, by taking note of other’s
Behavioural psychology posits that a person's behaviour is learned and maintained by its consequences, or
The way we learn our behavior in the environment is by what we see and here. If you're always around someone who is constantly yelling and arguing with someone you will more than likely end up doing the same thing because your are constantly around that behavior. “ Many scientific researchers have shown an obvious fact that the behavior of a human being is created by the environment if genes predispose a certain behavior but
Informational Social Influence this theory consists of the need to analyze different the information and different points of view. When a person is found in an unknown environment, without sufficient information about it. That person will look at other people’s behavior to know what the social norm is and will then behave in a similar way. People need information about their environment to feel comfortable.
In regards to social cognitive theory, one is looking at the fact that people learn by observing behavioral
The theory I will focus on is the Social Learning Theory. Albert Bandura theory explains that people learn from one another, either from modeling, imitation
