Jan is continuously late for school and has been stealing from others lockers and purses. How would each of these perspectives explain her behavior?
Humanistic: Jan could feel that she can't make her own choices, and can't control anything, but that this is one thing she can control.
Cognitive: Jan could be poor, she could think stealing things from others could solve her problems.
Behavioral: Her parents could've stolen in front of her, she could've learned stealing is right.
Social: Jan could've been influenced by her peers to start stealing.
Could this be correct? and how should I answer Biological, Evolutionary and Psychoanalytic?
