Lecture 5
Social Behaviorist Theory

- Children are informed about their gender by others
Focus:
- Behavior
Two Common Models:
- Operant conditioning
- Modeling
Behavior Modification
Goals:
- Increase frequency of a desired behavior
- Decrease frequency of an undesired behavior
Mechanism:
Operant Conditioning:
Reward: Something positive
Punishment: Something aversive
Positive: To give something
Negative: To take something away
Strength

- Ho do e polie other’s geder displa?
Weakness
- Does not account for novel behavior
- How do we learn new gender displays as we get older?
