Interdisciplinary Theories

A perspective in social psychology that considers most of everyday activity to be living up to the roles, or expectations, of others Role Theory; Banton
Emphasizes the importance of observing and modeling the behaviors, attitudes, and emotional reactions of others. Because it encompasses attention, memory and motivation, this theory spans both cognitive and behavioral frameworks. Social Learning Theory; Bandura
Three stages of change: Unfreezing, moving, and refreezing Change Theory; Lewin
The theory holds that moral reasoning, which is the basis for ethical behavior, has 3 identifiable developmental stages. This process continues throughout the lifespan. Moral Development Theory; Kohlberg
The model of relational development is an explanation put into states that understanding about the communication experiences that interpersonal communication changes in intimacy levels. Interpersonal Relationship Theory; Knapp
An interdisciplinary field that studies the properties of systems as a whole. It brings together the theoretical concepts and principles from ontology, philosophy of science, physics, biology, and engineering and later found applications in other fields. General Systems Theory; Ludwig von Bertalanffy, William Ross Ashby, Margaret Mead, George Bateson, and others in 1950's.
A general set of assumptions and propositions rather than a systematically verified formal theoretical system that delineates predictive and causal interactions. Temporary feeling of severe acute distress and of being overwhelmed. Involves trauma. Crisis Intervention Theory
The effect of stress is directly related to coping. Stress and Coping Theory; Naughton
8 developmental stages through which a healthily developing human should pass from infancy to late adulthood. In each stage the person confronts, and hopefully masters, new challenges. Psychosocial Development Theory; Erikson
Grief is the normal process of reacting both internally and externally to the perception of loss. Psychological/emotional, physical, and social reactions occur. Bereavement is the period after a loss during which grief is experienced and mourning occurs. Bereavement Theory (Death and Dying); Kubler-Ross
Describes the behavior of certain nonlinear dynamical systems that under certain conditions exhibit a phenomenon known as chaos. Chaos Theory
The idea that all the properties of a given system (biological, chemical, social, economic, mental, linguistic) cannot be determined or explained by the sum of its component parts alone. Instead, the system as a whole determines how the parts behave. Holism; Smuts first defined
The theory contends that as humans meet basic needs, they seek to satisfy successively higher needs that occupy a set hierarchy. Maslow's Self Actualization Theory; Maslow
Aims to understand the nature of inequality and focuses on gender politics, power relations, and sexuality. Themes explored include discrimination, stereotyping, objectification, oppression, and patriarchy. Feminist Theory
An approach to psychology based on the proposition that behavior can be studied and explained scientifically without recourse to internal mental states. Behaviorism-Operant Conditioning; Watson, Pavlov, and Skinner
The use of consequences to modify the occurrence and form of behavior. Operant Conditioning
Operant-deals with the modification of voluntary behavior through the use of consequences Pavlovian-deals with the conditioning of involuntary reflexive behavior so that it occurs under new antecedent conditions. Operant Conditioning vs. Pavlovian Conditioning
The use of theoretical frameworks to explain and analyze social patterns and large-scale social structures. It functions inherently in an interdisciplinary manner, as it uses ideas from and contributes to a plethora of disciplines. Social Support Theory
The peculiar and distinctive character of interaction as it takes place between human beings. Its concern tends to be the interaction order of daily life and experiences, rather than the structures associated with large scale, fixed social forces and laws Symbolic Interaction Theory; Blumer, Becher, Goffman, Denzin, Hochschild
