Question: Summarise the following using APA7 referencing style: Ecological systems theory, conceived by Urie Bronfenbrenner (1979), postulates that a child's development is influenced by the systemic interactions they have within their inherent environments, ranging from immediate surroundings (microsystem) to the broader societal culture (macrosystem). When applied to Alicia's situation, this theory outlines multiple factors across various systems that are critically impacting her development. Firstly, at Alicia's microsystem level, invaluable elements such as family, school, and her immediate environment have significant effects. Alicia's home setting is rather unstable, marked by her mother's substance abuse and limited monetary resources, contributing to her impaired cognitive development and low energy levels (Petrenko, 2015). The macrosystem includes cultural context and social policy. Alicia's parents' immigrant status and subsequent estrangement from the predominant culture possibly contribute to socio-economic and linguistic hurdles. In addition, an efficient social policy aimed at comprehensive support for children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS) would significantly improve Alicia's status. Lastly, Alicia's condition ā€“ FAS indicates the chronosystem influence, where time-dependent events, including exposure to alcohol prenatally, which significantly impair her cognitive development and learning capacity over time. In conclusion, Bronfenbrennerā€™s ecological systems theory allows an understanding of Alicia's circumstances holistically. Interactions across multiple systems, each fraught with challenges, critically affect her development. Adequate assistance tailored to her needs at every level is crucial to foster her growth and harness her artistic potential.

In Bronfenbrenner's (1979) ecological systems theory, a child's development is influenced by the interactions within their inherent environments, from immediate surroundings (microsystem) to broader societal culture (macrosystem). This being applied to Alicia's case, illustrates that various systemic factors are impacting her development. Family, school, and immediate environment play crucial roles at the microsystem level (Petrenko, 2015). Meanwhile, cultural context and social policy constitute the macrosystem, where parents' immigrant status and language barriers, alongside social policies for children with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (FAS), play a significant part. The chronosystem represents Alicia's conditionā€”FAS caused by prenatal alcohol exposure, affecting her cognitive development over time. Therefore, interactions across different systems shape Alicia's development and require comprehensive assistance.
