Please be specific by discussing your own views of the pros and cons to it.

1. What is the key difference between Bandura’s social learning theory and behavioristic
theories? And, discuss one way the theories are similar.
Bandura’s social learning theory and behavioristic theories differ in terms of how people
behave. The main difference is that Bandura’s social learning theory states that the behavior
of an individual is based on their internal psychological processes and observable stimuli

the consequences of their actions. However, behavioristic theories explain that environmental
stimuli change the behavior of a person. In social learning, behaviors can become fixed or
internalized as explained by Bandura but in behaviorism, behaviors are subject to change in
response to new reinforcements (Weiten & Lloyd, 2006). Both theories are similar because
