Albert Bandura

portrait de Albert Bandura

(Canada 1925)

The Canadian-born psychologist has worked at Stanford University since 1953 and is one of the most cited psychologists, living or dead. Bandura can be considered a cognitive behaviorist - acknowledging a place for the mind in psychological factors which influence our actions, but relying on behavioristic research and therapy in both his social learning and social cognitive theories.

Social cognitivism, involving the concept of self-efficacy, or an individual's belief in his or her own capacity to perform a task, identifies Bandura as a constructivist psychologist.
