Behaviourist Approach

The behaviourist approach attempts to explain behaviour in terms of learning. Behaviourists studychanges in behaviour that are caused by a person’s direct experience of their environment, using the principles of classical and operant conditioning. They are determined to be scientific and therefore refuse to discuss mental processes that might be involved in learning, because they are not observable and cannot be studied objectively.
