Social learning theory, for example, searches for the causes of behavior in the learning experiences of the individual, and cognitive­developmental theory, although acknowledging a role for environmental experiences, places primary emphasis on the impact of internal maturational forces.  This is reflected, first, in efforts to incorporate a broader range of interacting variables into the theoretical and empirical analyses.  The transactional nature of this theoretical formulation is illustrated by the hypothesis of a reciprocal relation between mood and hormonal forces.

Beyond this, though, the school functions as part of what Bronfenbrenner (1979, 1986) referred to as the macrosystem; that is, its role in transmitting the values, attitudes, and customs of the larger culture to the young person. Because the school plays such a critical role in development, it is also the context in which many problems of development originate or, at any rate, express themselves.  The school also represents a useful venue for introducing interventions designed to address these problems and, for this reason, assessments focusing on the school environment assume considerable importance.

Similarly, Hoge and Andrews (1992) and Loeber, Keenan, Lahey, Green, and Thomas (1993) raised questions about the correspondence among a number of clinically and empirically derived definitions of the conduct disorder construct (also see Kagan, 1988).  It is important to incorporate this possibility into our assessment systems.  52) In this light, it is encouraging that increasing efforts are being made to develop tools for the assessment of competencies. Two other issues relating to the analysis of problematic behaviors concern the prevalence of pathological conditions and the issue of stress.
