Ψ Epigenetic Systems Theory: An emergent theory that emphasizes the genetic origins of behavior but also stresses that genes, over time, are directly and systematically affected by many environmental factors.
Ψ The critical aspect of a system, is that change in one part of the system causes corresponding adjustments & changes in every other part. An individual is an epigenetic system whose genes form the foundation of that system (Goldsmith et al., 1997).
