As I have said, the positive effects of some behaviorist approaches have been time tested and proven by the so many schools around the world. But, like all the other theories, they also have thir limitations. We may improve the effects of behaviorist strategies by supporting it with other theories. For example, before coming up with a behaviorist teaching technique, we may take into consideration Daniel Goleman’s theory on Emotional Intelligence too.
The best approach to the use of behaviorist theory is to consider humans as humans and dogs as dogs. If we have this thinking in mind before we use the behaviorist strategy to learning, then we can be assured to yield more positive results.
