I. Using the information from Module 2, explain why a young child might refuse to go to school from a developmental perspective. What explanations might the leading theories of human development offer? In this assignment, provide an explanation of the child’s behavior from at least four (4) of the theories listed below:
Psychoanalytic Theory: Freud’s Psychosexual Theory
Psychoanalytic Theory: Erikson’s Psychosocial Theory
Learning Theory: Watson & Skinner’s Behavioral Theory
Learning Theory: Bandura’s Social Cognitive Theory
Cognitive-Developmental Theory: Piaget’s Constructivism
Vygotsky’s Sociocultural Theory
Bronfenbrenner’s Ecological System Model
As you write the paper, be sure to incorporate the terminology from each theory and explain the child’s behavior using the theory’s concepts. You do not have to use all of the stages of the developmental theories in your explanations.
