Your task is to prepare a 1000-word report that relates to working effectively with children and
The following questions require theoretical application and need to be defined and discussed in
terms of the case scenario (using correct APA 7 referencing style). You will need to provide
clear examples from the case scenario in order to illustrate your understanding of the questions.
1. Identify how Ana’s behaviour (as described in the case enquiry) has been, or is being,
influenced by learning. Which specific learning principles are operating, and in what
specific ways are these influencing Ana’s behaviour?
(Please provide a definition of each learning principle (including reference/s), and at
least one example of operant conditioning, one example of classical conditioning, and
one example of social learning theory from the case scenario in your response).
2. Identify and define Ana’s probable stage of psychosocial and cognitive development. In
your answer, please include the following:
a) What factors (e.g., social and environmental), as described in the case enquiry, might
be affecting Ana’s development?
b) What influences are the identified factors having on Ana’s behaviour as described in
the case enquiry?
(You will need to provide a definition of both developmental theories (including
reference/s) and justify the stages you have identified Ana to be in, with examples from
the case scenario to demonstrate your understanding of each stage).
3. In what ways are issues with memory impacting on Ana (as a result of the memory
processes of other significant people in the enquiry)?
(In your response, you will need to include a definition of memory with reference/s and
explain the impact of memory on Ana by providing examples from the case scenario).
