Why social learning theory
Why Social Learning Theory?

Internal determinants (personality, innate behaviors, etc.) are not the only factors influencing human behavior.

External factors are also determinants in behavior, but are not independent of internal determinants in explaining how humans learn.

Thus….

  • Social learning theory is a continuous, cyclical interaction between cognitive, behavioral, and environmental determinants to produce human behavior. From the social learning perspective, reciprocal determinism, maintains that people, environment and situations continually affect each other.


Vicarious processes
Vicarious processes

  • Learning by personal experience and observation

  • Response consequences

  • Modeling

    • Observational learning

      • Paying attention

      • Retaining

      • Motor production

      • Motivational


Symbols
Symbols

Learning by exposure to images of

desirable futures that motivate desired actions

  • Symbolic modeling

    • Guide for desired behavior

Conclusion

Social Learning Theory maintains that humans can learn through:

  • Personal experience and observation or modeling,

  • Exposure to and following symbols for specific behavioral patterns, and

  • By regulating their own behavior through self reward or reprimand, by training themselves to respond to specific predetermined stimuli in their environment.
