Behaviorism Observable behavior Conditioning The Elements of Classical Conditioning Unconditioned stimulus (US) and unconditioned response (UR)

Naturally occurring stimulus (US) evokes a naturally occurring response (UR) Neutral stimulus (NS) Pairing neutral and unconditioned stimuli NS and US presented together NS becomes a conditioned stimulus (CS) that produces a conditioned response (CR)

Theories of Human Development Operant conditioning - B.F. Skinner (19041990) Desired outcomes = more likely to repeat Undesired outcomes = less likely to repeat Positive and Negative Reinforcement Positive reinforcement

Negative reinforcement Behavior leads to addition of something pleasant Behavior is rewarded by the removal of something unpleasant Negative reinforcement is not punishment

Negative means removing something Remember that reinforcement increases behavior Positive and Negative Punishment Punishment is an unpleasant consequence that leads to a decrease in behavior Positive punishment

Addition of something unpleasant that decreases behavior Negative punishment Removal of something pleasant that decreases behavior Theories of Human Development Social Learning Theory - Albert Bandura

(b. 1925) An extension of behaviorism that emphasizes the influence that other people have over a persons behavior. Modeling- people learn by observing other people and then copying them. Self-efficacy- (how effective people think they are when it comes to changing

themselves or altering their social context. Social Learning Theory and Cognition Four steps to modeling Attention Retention Reproduction of behavior

Motivation Theories of Human Development Cognitive Theory Thoughts and expectations profoundly affect action. Focuses on changes in how people think over time. Jean Piaget (18961980) Cognitive Theories Jean Piaget
