  • Nature/ Nurture Debate
    • Nurture
      • Bandura's Social Learning Theory - we copy behaviour we see being rewarded ie helping
      • Pavlov's Classical Conditioning - We are rewarded for helping and we feel good. We then associate helping with feeling good and we repeat it
      • Skinner's Operant Conditioning - We maintain or increase behaviour that is rewarded
      • Negative Reinforcement - Helping decreases your personal distress levels
    • Nature
      • Wilson's Theory of Kin (Kinship) - we are more likely to help members of our family to keep our genes continuing
      • Altruism  helps a person survive and helping genes are passed on
