Family Violence Assignment
Please read “Social Learning Theory and Partner Violence: A Research Note” By Christine S. Sellers, John K. Cochran, and Kathryn A. Branch (see attachment). Next, answer the following two questions. Try to keep your response to 500 words total. As always it is more important to me that you answer the question, so if you are a little over or a little under the word count that is fine.
Question 1: Briefly describe Akers’ (1998) Social Learning Theory. According to Akers (1998), why do people commit criminal behavior?
Question 2: Please provide an overall summary of the article. What did the authors find? Was the theory supported?
