Bandura’s Social Learning Theory Albert Bandura’s (1997) social learning theory states that people learn from their interactions with others.

Thus, the social worker could utilize cognitive behavioral therapy for people who are struggling/suffering from anxiety, depression, panic, agoraphobia social phobia, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and Schizophrenia etc., by assisting a client to change how she/he think and what they do. Since the focus is on the current causes of distress or symptoms instead to improve their state of mind now. According to James Pretzer (2014), There has been limited research on the ways in which cultural differences may impact the cognitive behavioral therapy practice.
