´╗┐Comparing psychological approaches. Social learning theory- Humanistic.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

Good examples given to illustrate the differences between Humanistic & Social Learning theory. However poor grammar makes some of the points difficult to understand. The last few sentences need to be re-worded in more academic terms.
