I need to analyzing Bronfenbrenner's ecological theory of development. - Homework Help - eNotes.com

Basically, Urie Bronfenbrenner ecological theory of development is based on a nested model (kind of like those Russian nesting dolls). At the core of the nested model is the individual. Each layer within the nested is interdependent and intradependent of each other, which means that each layer affects one another. The layers imply the services and needs the individual (at the core) needs to have a balanced life in society, and they include school, social services, family, religious groups and, in general, every community resource available.
