Social learning theory (imitation) 

Bandura 1963 - Four basic processes 

 Attention--> concentration 

Retention --> storing behaviour 

Reproduction --> copying

Motivation --> reason to repeat the behaviour 

Key points: The presence of a role model (in order for behaviour to be copied) + needs self-confidence so that they can imitate the behaviour
