Both founders of the conflict theory, Max Webster and George Herbert, based their perspective as being humans themselves and not off of society much like the functionalism theory does. Functionalism and symbolic interactionists are positive perspectives while the conflict theory is mostly negative. Although, conflict theory does not always have to be negative. Most people want to understand their role in a society. The sociological perspective helps you to try to understand your place in the
Limitation of theory 1. Loosely Structured This is because social cognitive theory is so major, it has been criticized for insufficient any one unifying principle. So people are viewed as so dynamic that it is difficult to implement the theory in its entirety. Instead, implementation is likely to focus on one or two concepts, such as self-efficacy.
Abstract Carl Ransom Rogers, well-known as Carl Rogers was one of the most prominent American psychologist. He is a psychologist that practice humanism and most of his notions and work are closely related to humanism. Carl Rogers contribution to psychology was his concept self-actualization, theory of personality and his psychotherapy approach (person centered therapy). Rogers, approach and concept was widely use back then in the 1950s as many psychologist believed that his concept and approach provides a clearer understanding on human behaviour as compared to psychodynamic and behavioural approach. However, later in the present, the contemporary psychology was dominating the field of psychology and Rogers approach or work slightly loses it ground due to their limitations.
A growth mindset creates motivation whereas a fixed mindset leads to sameness. Based on Dweck’s definition of growth mindset, finding new ways to be better and improve oneself is possible. With a growth mindset comes the belief that anyone can be good at anything because ability is tied to action and skills come from practice. A major belief of growth mindset is that failure is a major key to success and the improvement
Every day, the majority will habitually worry about what they own rather than who they really are. However, it’s sort of not their fault as it’s in our nature to long for material possessions and has something amazing to impress others. But hear this out – “The best things in life aren’t things” Art Muchwald. Society shouldn’t only be just focused on easily replaceable materialistic things.
Low self-esteem makes you feel not confidence, wanting to be/look like someone else, always worried what others might think, pessimistic. This is bad and no one should have low self-esteem.

Which he believed that as long as the person overcame the problems then the person would get through level. Carl Rogers and Abraham Maslow are psychologies more Humanist theorists. Humanist emphasize on the need of free will and the act of individual life situations. They believe that causes the development of personality. They believe that self-actualization is the major need for personal development and that is the reason that motivates behavior.
For example, one component of anti-oppressive practice is critical self-reflection by social workers. Critical modern social work approaches fail to identify diversity of social worker’s abilities to reflect critically depending on context, institution (Healy, 2014, p.203), education and personal barriers. A second example of the potential contradictions within modern critical social work is that of empowerment and addressing larger structural systems. For an individual, gaining insight into the power and control that structural systems play in people’s lives can be overwhelming. For individuals facing multiple barriers on psychological, individual, familial and societal levels, facing structural barriers can further contribute to feelings of powerlessness.
The theorist of most concern in this study is Abraham Maslow. He is the father of the human potential movement who developed a validated hierarchy of human needs theory (Maslow, 1943). Validation of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Human Needs behavioral theory is critical for previous research because it builds on what has been proven or already established. His Hierarchy of Human Needs theory was chosen because there are different levels of motivation as well as different levels of team performance. Maslow states that there are at least five sets of goals, which may be called basic needs.
According to a journal on early sociological experiments, “One hundred years after its publication, Émile Durkheim’s later sociology of religion continues to exert an enormous influence on religious studies.” (Fournier). I think that society is the biggest factor that shapes behavior. I also agree with Durkheim that social integration is important. If you don’t integrate with other human beings enough you are going to feel lonely.
