Caitlin Dekker Psych 341 Sec1 Social Cognitive Theory Chapter 9 What does human agency entail for Bandura, and how might this be similar or different from other conceptualizations of agency? - Bandura believes that people are originators or agents of experience, thus human agency is the ability to act and make things happen. Instead of just reacting to their environment or other influences, people have an active role in constructing their life as both producers and products. Agency entails intentionality or purposeful behavior, forethought, self-reactiveness, and self-reflectiveness. What are the three factors in Bandura’s triadic reciprocal causation and how process work? - The triadic reciprocal causation is the interplay of behavioral, cognitive, and environmental factors. These factors act as interlocking determinants of one another. What are three factors that influence modeling and what impact do they have on observational learning? - Characteristics of the model- we are more influenced by someone who is similar, performing simple behaviors, and certain kinds of behavior. -Attributes of the observer- those lacking in self-esteem or incompetent are likely to follow the structure of a model as are highly dependent people and those who have been rewarded for conforming behavior -Reward consequences associated with a behavior- people are more likely to model a behavior if they believe it will lead to positive short or long term results. Observational learning is not simply imitation, but an active judgmental and constructive process.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
