These systems are a set of behaviors activated by environmental stimuli. The attachment system is activated in order to reconnect with a person that provides them emotional safety. The exploratory system allows a person to explore their surrounding environment. Also, the fear/wariness system is used to withdraw from frightening and distressing situations. Another key feature of Attachment Theory are internal working models.
Introduction This assessment will examine Dasani’s life from the bifocal of spiritual, cultural, physical aspect of her environment. Also in this assessment, I will use the theories we have learned about to evaluate further how they apply to Dasani’s situation. Summary of Control Theory Control Theory teaches us that we as individual’s face issues when trying to control what goes on in our physical environment. This theory illustrates that we have some sense of ownership or power over what takes place in our surroundings. Four essential concepts when discussing control theory such as; Privacy, Personal Space, Territoriality, and Crowding.
What is even more undervalued is the influence of a person's environment on what authority they will take in making a decision. As much as obedience is desired, the counterpart is to also fulfill some sort of self interest or fulfillment. Therefore, even if it's out of character, having the authority to make a decision can lead to unpredictable outcomes.
Awareness of other humans, objects, environments, ideas, and, most importantly, oneself. The forms and levels of awareness are endless, but identifying one’s actions gives that person the capability to control their fate. A person’s future depends on their own choices and how they choose to interact with other people and things around them. Fate is determined by a person’s will power to be aware of themselves in relation to the world around
The adaptation system has input coming from the external environment as well as internally from the person. Along with stimuli, the adaptation level of the person acts as input to that person as an adaptation system. Adaptation level is constantly changing aspect which is influenced by the coping mechanism of that person. Output are the behaviors of the person, acts as both external and internal, these behaviors can be measured, observed, or subjectively reported. Output behavior becomes feedback to the system and may be either adaptive or ineffective responses.
There is high risk with this model, however the degree of risk can be controlled by acquiring information on the probability of the selected alternative producing the desired outcome. Another option would be the Incremental Model. With this model, Mr. Miller would work with the faculty and other individuals to establish instructional goals. Mr. Miller could then return to the issues surrounding ability grouping to determine whether the decision would enhance goal attainment. Mr. Miller could also choose the Mixed Scanning Model.
“In this case drive becomes the state of tension that is associated with the need which causes the organism to become active hence energized. This process produces its own stimuli and its own response”. In this process, a desired condition is gained through satisfying the need. Once satisfaction or the desired need is attained, reinforcement will follow. The reinforcement is the final process which in turn promotes
III - In Emily Greenfield’s, description of Ford and Lerner’s 1992 Developmental Systems Theory, she writes “While DST notes that social environments can fundamentally influence individuals’ behavior, at the same time, individuals-within existing environmental constraints and opportunities-can select and shape these very environments. In this way, DST conceptualizes individuals as both products and producers of their own development. (E. Greenfield p. 532) The person-environment relationship is symbiotic, they affect one another and cannot be viewed independent of each other. Using Levine’s Basic Problem Solving Process, if we define assessment, as leading “...to a definition of the problem, and it beginning to indicate resources for dealing
In Bronfenbrenner’s two fold approach, firstly he prioritises the reciprocity of relationships (Bronfenbrenner, 1979), secondly he attempts to extend his scope of study outwards - considering the social spheres (socio-political, historical and ideological set of circumstances) of influence as he considers the testing and laboratory rooms limited and isolated for the study of psychological development (1977, 1979). Bronfenbrenner’s focus is not on the isolated level of the development of the individual; Bronfenbrenner defines development as “individuals’ evolving conception of the ecological environment, their relation to it, as well as their growing capacity to discover, sustain, or alter its perspective” (Hook, 2009 p.502). As defined by Bronfenbrenner the “ecological environment is conceived topologically as a nested arrangement of structures, each contained within the next (Bronfenbrenner, 1977 p.514) - like a set of Russian dolls. A description of these structures - from the innermost level to the outside will be provided below however it is also important to understand that within these systems the individual’s experience is understood in relation to setting - this can be at home, school; in relation to role -
