Behavioral and Social-Cognitive Approaches to Forming Habits

Write a 1,050 to 1,500 paper analyzing the formation of habits using behavioral and social-cognitive approaches. Your presentation should cover the following areas: Analyze one of your current habits that you would like to change. How did you develop this habit? Were there role models for this habit? Which people influenced the adoption of this habit? Why do you continue it? Has there been a time when you have attempted to break this habit? Use the behavioral/reinforcement personality theory to explain why you have this habit. Describe components of social-cognitive theory that explain why the habit formed. Develop a 3-step plan that applies operant conditioning to change this habit (must include reinforcement for each step). Between the behavioral/reinforcement and social-cognitive theories, which one do you find best explains your personality? Provide a minimum of 3 academic APA references with matching citations in the paper.
