    1. Chapter 1: Exploring Child Development Theories about Child Development By Kati Tumaneng (for Drs. Cook & Cook)

    2. Theories about Child Development • What is a Theory? • A theory is an explanation of how facts fit together, allowing us to understand and predict behavior. • Why are Theories Useful? • Summarize the facts as currently known • Allow prediction of future behavior and events • Provide guidance • Stimulate new research and discoveries • Act as filters for identifying relevant info, observations, and relationships

    3. Theories • Psychoanalytic • Behavioral & Social Learning • Cognitive • Biological • Systems

    4. Psychoanalytic Theories • Theories that focus on the structure of personality and on how the conscious and unconscious portions of the self influence behavior and development. • Prominent Theorists • Sigmund Freud • Erik Erikson

    5. Sigmund Freud http://www.freudfile.org/

    6. Psychoanalytic Theories:Freud • Freud (1856-1939) focused on structure of personality; how conscious and unconscious shaped development • 3 levels of conscious awareness • Id – primitive sexual and aggressive instincts • Ego – rational branch of personalities • Superego – moral branch of personalities

    7. Psychoanalytic Theories:Freud • 5 Stages of Psychosexual development • Oral (age 0-2) • Anal (age 2-3) • Phallic (age 3-7) • Latency (age 7-11) • Genital (age 11-adulthood)

    8. Erik Erikson http://www.ship.edu/~cgboeree/erikson.html

    9. Psychoanalytic Theories:Erikson • Erickson (1902-1994) focused on ego and healthy child development • Psychosocial stages of development • Trust v. Mistrust (age 0-1) • Autonomy v. Shame and Doubt (age 2-3) • Initiative v Guilt (age 4-5) • Industry v. Inferiority (age 6-12) • Identity v. Role Confusion (adolescence) • Intimacy v. Isolation (early adulthood) • Generativity v. Stagnation (middle adulthood) • Integrity v. Despair (later adulthood)

    10. John B. Watson http://www.muskingum.edu/~psych/psycweb/history/watson.htm

    11. Behavioral Learning Theories • Behaviorism – An American movement to develop a psychology that was objective and scientific focusing on the principles of classical conditioning and operant conditioning. • Watson (1878-1958) – Father of American Behaviorism; focus on observable conditions in environment and how they are related to overt behaviors

    12. Ivan Pavlov http://nobelprize.org/medicine/laureates/1904/pavlov-bio.html

    13. Behavioral Learning Theories • Classical conditioning – Process where neutral stimuli are paired with unconditioned stimuli until they come to evoke conditioned responses. • Pavlov’s dog • Watsonapplied classical conditioning workof Pavlov to children • Little Albert http://dushkin.com/connectext/psy/ch06/watson.mhtml

    14. B. F. Skinner http://www.bfskinner.org/bio.asp

    15. Behavioral Learning Theories • Operant Conditioning – Process where reinforcing or punishing consequences of actions affect behaviors. • Skinner stressed importance of consequences of behavior for learning and development. • E.g., praise for cleaning room or grounding for missing curfew.

    16. Albert Bandura http://www.des.emory.edu/mfp/bandurabio.html

    17. Social Learning Theories • Social Learning – Process where children learn by observing and imitating the behaviors of other people. • Bandura studied how children learn by observing and imitating others. • E.g., girl learns to smile at visitors after watching her father smile at visitors

    18. Jean Piaget http://www.ship.edu/~cgboeree/piaget.html

    19. Cognitive Theories:Piaget • Piaget (1896-1980) created the Cognitive Development Theory which focused on how children actively adjust their own understandings as they learn about the world. • Schemes – mental representations • E.g., how to grasp a ball

    20. Cognitive Theories:Piaget • Assimilation – the process of bringing new objects or information into a scheme that already exists. If the assimilation is not successful, the scheme needs to be accommodated. E.g., infant drops the ball. • Accommodation – the process of adjusting or adapting a scheme so it fits the new experience. E.g., infant learns to hold ball with 2 hands.

    21. Cognitive Theorists:Piaget • Four Stages of Development • Sensorimotor • Preoperational • Concrete operational • Formal operational • Current information processing approach to studying cognition built on Piaget’s foundation • A theoretical approach focusing on how children perceive, store, and retrieve information, and on the strategies they use to solve problems.

    22. Lev Vygotsky http://www.marxists.org/archive/vygotsky/index.htm

    23. Cognitive Theorists:Vygotsky • Vygotsky (1896-1934) created the Sociocultural Theory which emphasized importance of language and culture in shaping cognition. • Internalization of speech aids self-control • Social speech • Private speech • Inner speech

    24. Cognitive Theorists • Information Processing Theory – A Theoretical approach focusing on how children perceive, store, and retrieve information, and on the strategies they use to solve problems. • Emphasize roles of: • Basic processing efficiency • Changes in the knowledge base

    25. Biological Theories • Ethology – Area of study focusing on the adaptive significance or survival value of behaviors. • Strong influence from Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and natural selection concept. • Behavior Genetics • Neuropsychology – An area of study that focuses on the study of the brain and nervous system; researchers often observe brain functions using technology such as CT scans, PET, and fMRI.

    26. Biological Theories

    27. Urie Bronfenbrenner http://www.psy.pdx.edu/PsiCafe/KeyTheorists/Bronfenbrenner.htm

    28. Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems Theory • Focuses on the complex set of systems and interacting social layers that can affect a child’s development. • Microsystem – interactions with people in immediate environment • Mesosystem – larger social environment • Exosystem – even larger social settings and networks • Macrosystem – values, customs, laws and resources of culture at large • Chronosystem – how the effects of the systems, and the interrelationships among them, change over time

    29. Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Systems Theory

    30. Dynamic Systems Theory • Theories that use models from mathematics and physics to understand complex systems of development. • Focus on how layers of systems interact with one another and change over time.
