Uri Bronfenbrenner
- Before Bronfenbrenner, child psychologists studied children, economists studied
the economic framework, etc. As a result of his work, people started to
intermingle and interdisciplinary research came out because children are affected
by all the factors
- At the time, we weren’t getting to the complexity of the situation by looking so
narrowly at kids

Uri Bronfenbrenner
Proposition 1
- Development happens in interactions with people and surroundings. There is
participation on both sides. Not just parents influencing kids but vice versa.
- One interaction once isn’t going to influence development as much as repeated
interactions.
- He talks about proximal processes: things that happen close to you in your life
o Parent-child/child-child interaction, solitary and group play, learning new
skills, reading, studying, etc
Proposition 2
- Everything matters. Characters, environment and proximal processes matter
differently for different outcomes.
- Examples:
o Individual characters (e.g. if one twin starts reading first, will interact with
parent differently than other twin)
o Environment (e.g. in safe neighborhoods, authoritarian parenting seen as
strict and harmful but in dangerous neighborhood, seen as buffer)
o Outcome also changes the proximal process (e.g. positive interactions with
teachers have a greater impact on intellectual/cognitive development than
physical development)
Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological Model
- 5 nested environmental systems
- Child is at very center of model
- Microsystem
o Closest and direct interaction with the child (family, school, daycare,
peers, church, health services)
o Child is active agent (where proximal processes take place)
o Dual interaction: bi-directional
- Exosystem
o Links and processes between two and more settings, at least one in which
child isn’t directly participating in (e.g. parent workplace)
- Macrosystem
o Attitudes, ideologies of the culture (e.g. laws, customs, beliefs, material
resources, hazards)
o Constraints what a child or parent can do
- Mesosystem
o Connections and processes between two or more settings (e.g. siblings
interacting differently with neighborhood, mom going to parent-teacher
conference)
o Interaction between different systems
- Chronosystem
o Transitions over the life course
o Effects created by time or critical periods in development
o Example: Divorce that happens earlier in lifetime seen as more negative
than if it happened later in life
