Respond to the following post provided down below


Discussion Question:

The behavioral/social learning approach includes areas of classical conditioning, operant conditioning, observational learning, and the social-cognitive learning approach. In this area of psychopathology, behaviorists account for many of the behaviors and psychological disorders through these concepts and many use these techniques designed to overcome many of these behaviors and disorders in therapy.   

For your discussion this week, select a current even from the news in the past 6-12 months where the behavior appears to be abnormal (e.g. Mass shooting, social media presence, political event).  


  1. In looking at the individual's behavior, select two approaches in the behavioral/social learning approach and explain how these approaches may have contributed to the acquisition of this behavior.  
  2. Explain how the two approaches you selected, can support the modification of this individual's behavior?  


Response

1.) In South Carolina, former NFL player, Phillip Adams, broke into the home of Robert Lesslie and fatallly murdered him and his family in a tragic murder suicide. There looks to be no motive from first glance but the case is still undergoing investigation. Cognitive factoring must have played a part in the behaviors of the suspect and the crimes that were commited. He may have had personal connections and feelings tied to the victims of this case, but that can only be confirmed after further investigation. Environmental factors could also be a reason why the perpratrator acted violently, his career may have given access to the victim and his family. The concussions and brain damage could have also played a part in the aggressive nature of the crime.


2.) The two behaviors that I chose can support the modification of this individuals behaviors because I think they are the most accurate explanations to the behaviors that the suspect showed in this case. There are other things that may be a probable cause in this case, but those are yet to be detremined.
