Ecological Systems TheoryBenefits childrenShort- & long-term developmentFamilies who become involved in parent-education programs gain a sensitivity to their childs emotional, social, & intellectual needs. Children are also affected by society-at-large. Family InvolvementBeyond the Immediate
MicrosystemThe immediate environment in which a person is operating, such as the family, classroom, peer group, neighborhood, etc.
The interaction of two microsystem environments, such as the connection between a childs home and school. Home system School system
The environment in which an individual is not directly involved, which is external to his or her experience, but nonetheless affects him or her. An example of an exosystem is the parents workplace.
The larger cultural context, including issues of cultural values and expectations.
ChronosystemEvents occurring in the context of passing time. These events may have impact on a particular birth cohort.
Development, it turns out, occurs through this process of progressively more complex exchange between a child and somebody elseespecially somebody who's crazy about that child.Bronfenbrenner
*Researchers say that before Bronfenbrenner, child psychologists studied the child, sociologists examined the family, anthropologists the society, economists the economic framework of the times and political scientists the structure. As the result of Bronfenbrenner's groundbreaking concept of the ecology of human development, these environments -- from the family to economic and political structures -- were viewed as part of the life course, embracing both childhood and adulthood. ****faculty.weber.edu/.../ecological.htmhttp://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://faculty.weber.edu/tlday/1500/bronfen.gif&imgrefurl=http://faculty.weber.edu/tlday/human.development/ecological.htm&usg=__yATmiAfTbuOd6PCGKK_4cNoAO3w=&h=157&w=108&sz=20&hl=en&start=7&um=1&tbnid=gcSZ_YfLR9XZJM:&tbnh=97&tbnw=67&prev=/images%3Fq%3Durie%2Bbronfenbrenner%26gbv%3D2%26hl%3Den%26safe%3Dstrict%26client%3Ddell-usuk%26channel%3Dus%26sa%3DG%26ad%3Dw5%26um%3D1******
