Since we now have a greater understanding on how their brains work, what about the reasoning behind all of this?
The Human Ecological Theory answers many questions around why people act the way they do and why they are the way that they are.
- Microsystem: Relationships with significant others, family, school, peers
- Mesosystem: linkage between two or more microsystems
- Exosystem: setting in which people are not active participants but which affect them in
- Macrosystem: the society and subculture to which a developmental person belongs
This is a model of Urie Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Model.
