Social Learning Theory: Approaches

The social learning theory is concerned with how people learn when they observe and imitate others. It can be seen as a bridge between the Behaviourist Approach and the Cognitive Approach as like the Behaviourist Approach, it emphasises the importance of environment and reinforcement in learning. However, like the Cognitive Approach, it acknowledges the important role that internal mental processes play in interpreting the environment and planning new actions.
