What is Social Cognitive Theory?

A social cognitive theory is one that an individual has adopted based on his experience, environment and interactions with others. An example would be a child who learns that if he touches the television remote, someone is likely to scold him. That experience is unpleasant, he doesn’t wish to be scolded, so he then stops touching the television remote. I’ve never seen this particular example work though, because toddlers have a strong curiosity that over rides EVERYTHING. I hope you do understand the process though, its a theory about life that we’ve learned through our experiences. To find more information click here:
