Introduction

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

It?s a more self-centred but Maslow?s theory basically states we can never reach ?self-actualization? due too many issues getting in the way, can anyone ever say that they feel like they are loved. Yes there is unconditional love but we don?t all feel it. And just because I?m shy and don?t own a house I?m not ?self-actualized?? ...read more.

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.
