These skills require adaptive learning and these are influenced by internal and external factors.
These internal factors involve our cognitions (beliefs, values, attitudes, expectation, attributions), motivation, ability to manage our self and assumed ability to learn (or sometimes the assumed biological constraints that limit our learning).
The external factors involve our access to environmental resources such as social or professional help, information, our cultural and physical environment etc.
The product of these internal factors in combination with the external factors determine our capacity to learn and develop those skills necessary to take us from where we are to where we want to be.
In this lecture, Dr. Franklin will briefly examine the techniques which facilitate the process of learning and personal change.
