Aggression- Social Learning Theory

Example: Imagine you are a teen hanging out with friends after school in your school uniform. One of your friends decide to throw rocks at a car, all of the others soon join in and cheer him on, although they are usually not the type to do so. Why is this?

This is a good example of social learning theory because here the teens have seen a ‘role model’ from the group do something aggressive, we often imitate these people as they are people we look up to.
