The [blank_start]Behaviorist Approach[blank_end] is an approach that rejected introspection, instead focusing on observable events and explains behavior in terms of learned responses to predictable patterns of environmental stimuli. The Social Learning Theory involves learning through observing others and imitating behaviours that are rewarded. The Biological Approach - Views humans as biological organisms and so provides biological explanations for all aspects of psychological functioning. Psychodynamic - Refers to any theory that emphasises change and development in the individual, particularly those theories where 'drive' is a central concept in development. The best known theory is Freudian psychoanalysis. Humanistic Psychology - An approach to understanding human nature that emphasizes the positive potential of human beings.
