Behaviour Models

The idea of behaviour modelling has its roots in social learning theory. This theory holds that children learn through observation. As a result, parents and teachers should model appropriate behaviour at all times when children are observing them.

In behaviour modelling, an individual can learn new behaviours by observing. The correct behaviour is demonstrated for the learner, the learner observes the model and then imitates the behaviour of the modeL.

The behavioral model is generally viewed as including three major areas: classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and observational learning/social learning.
