Cognitive development is an intellectual growth from infancy to adulthood. Jean Piaget (1896-1980), a Swiss psychologist, was one of the most important and influential researchers in the field of developmental psychology throughout the 20th century. Piaget was born in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, on August 9, 1896. His father, Arthur Piaget, was a professor of medieval literature with an interest in local history. His mother, Rebecca Jackson, was intelligent and energetic. The oldest child, he was very independent and took an early interest in nature. He published his first paper when he was ten - a one page account of his sighting of an albino sparrow.Piaget was the first to develop

During early years of life, development is rapid. A child progresses from helpless
newborn to a walking, talking child with independent ideas and opinions. While the changes on
the outside are the most obvious, there are also significant developments in the brain. Studies
suggest that stress experienced early in life has detrimental consequences on brain development,
including brain regions involved in cognitive function. Exposure to trauma in early childhood

The weak central coherence theory of autism was proposed as an explanation for such strengths (Frith & Happe, 1994). Central coherence refers to an individual’s ability to derive overall meaning or ‘see the big picture’ (i.e. global information processing). Individuals with autism are hypothesized to have weak central coherence and a cognitive bias for details at the expense of meaning. Numerous studies have investigated this; Firth

In order to apply the ZPD theory, teachers can observe children carefully and plan more difficult curriculum to inspire children’s abilities by stretching the competence of children (Mooney, 2013). Pairing up with other children who can learn from each other would also be helpful in this case because children’s cognitive development is not completely restricted by their physical development, and their social surroundings and interactions may also have a beneficial effect (Mooney, 2013).

For example, if the students are in the concrete operational stage, they need “manipulatives” to help them understand more abstract ideas. Thus, the lesson plan should involve hands on activities that has concrete objects to aid understanding and enhance learning.
Piaget’s theory can be applied to when and how a child should be taught. Piaget’s theory is very student centred and the role of the teacher is as the facilitator, this basically means that the teacher should not ‘spoon feed’ the pupil the information but help them by assessing the level they are at and then setting suitable tasks for example giving children small

Piaget's theory of cognitive development consists of various stages, which happen at various times of a young person's life. The stage of life for an adolescent, between the ages of twelve to sixteen, is known as the formal operational stage. This stage is the fourth and final stage of cognitive development. "Formal operational thinkers can recognize and identify a problem. They can state several alternative hypotheses, execute procedures to collect information about the problems to be studied, and test the hypotheses." (Lin, 2002). Prior to adolescence thought is concentrated on much less complex thoughts.During this stage they acquire a method of thinking called hypothetical-deductive

This being true, television commercials like this one are poison to minds of children, male and female adults, and society as a whole. Representing women in this way creates a negative stereotype that affects males and females, alike, because it allows for this way of thinking to perpetuate into a socially acceptable reality where men are better than women.

From these theories, he said that people who do well on intelligence tests also do well on a variety of intellectual tasks. "Vocabulary and mathematical and spatial abilities". (Wilderdom, 2003).

Modern pedagogy has been strongly influenced by the theories of major theorists such as Piaget, Vygotsky and Bruner. Piaget argued that children construct an understanding of the world around them, and then experience discrepancies between what they already know and what they discover in their environment. The cognitive theory developed by Piaget was a theory that concentrated on the human thought process in child development. Moore (2012) explains that Piaget believed that children were active learners who construct their knowledge rather than receive and store it. He also believed that

Expectations of Clients
As an REBT therapist I would expect that our communications would be kept confidential and that they would be in an environment free from judgement. Next, I would expect that my client would want to be respected as a person and treated with dignity. Thirdly, most clients would want to be taken seriously. They would want their therapist to address topics of concern that are important to them and not dismiss them as unimportant. Fourth, I would expect my client to want a knowledgeable therapist that knows what they are doing. Lastly, I would expect that my client would want a therapist who is flexible and allows the client to make choices after properly educating and informing them (Wright & Davis, 1994, pp.31-33).

The Social Learning Theory of Bandura emphasises the importance of observing and modelling the behaviours, attitudes and emotional reactions of others. The Social Learning Theory explains human behaviour in terms of continuous reciprocal interaction between cognitive, behavioural, an environmental influences, suggesting that behaviour can be learned at the cognitive level through observing other people's actions. (Blackburn, 1993) This suggests that people are capable of imagining themselves in similar situations, and of incurring similar outcomes. Once the behaviour is learned it may be reinforced or punished by the consequences it generates. Bandura subscribed to several of the essential

In the first stage of development called the sensorimotor stage there is substage of development called object permanence that is very important in an infant development.

Infants don’t understand this at first, if an infant is playing with a toy and you over it with a towel, they no longer think the toy exists. Out of site out of mind.

learned behavior will not occur unless it is energized. The major question among psychologists, in general, is whether motivation is a primary or secondary influence on behavior. That is, are changes in behavior better explained by principles of environmental/ecological influences, perception, memory, cognitive development, emotion, explanatory style, or personality or are concepts unique to motivation more pertinent.
For example, we know that people respond to increasingly complex or novel events (or stimuli) in the environment up to a point and then responses decrease. This inverted-U-shaped curve of behavior is well-known and widely acknowledged. However, the major issue is one of

Bronfenbrenner’s model is a theory of educational psychology that studies human development over time. He came up with four ecological systems that an individual interacted with. Microsystem, mesosystem, exosystem, and macrosystem. The first layer (microsystem) Is the first and immediate layer of the nested systems. It holds the human relationships and interactions with surroundings (ex. Parents, siblings, school environment). The second layer (mesosystem) is relationships between the family and school teachers or administrators (direct interaction). The third layer is the exosystem
