- Review this week’s Learning Resources on social psychology and sex-linked modeling.
- Think about how social psychology and, specifically, Bandura’s social cognitive theory, explains how modeling affects cognitive development and behavior.
- Consider your childhood and select an adult who influenced your personal development. The adult could include a primary caregiver, extended member of the family, or family friend with whom you were close as a child.
Post a response to the following:
Explain some of the behaviors of the adult that you learned as a child and now demonstrate. Based on social cognitive theory, explain how you might have acquired the behaviors. Be specific.
Note: Support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and any additional sources you identify using both in-text citations and references. It is strongly recommended that you include proper APA format and citations.
