A2 Psychology - Gender lesson 2
Transcript of A2 Psychology - Gender lesson 2
How do children learn gender appropriate behaviour?
How do children acquire the concept of gender?
Social Learning Theory (Bandura 1963)
Social Cognitive Theory
Combines the ideas of SLT, Cognitive development theory and gender schema theory
Indirect (Vicarious) Reinforcement
Behaviour is reinforced
Gender appropriate behaviour is internalised as children develop cognitively. Reasoning and regulation of behaviour develops schemas .
Sources of social influence
The biological approach cannot be ignored here... biological gender has to be identified at birth in order for appropriate gender behaviour to be learnt.
Does it have an effect on how children learn gender?
