The advantages of Behavioural Perspective are that it is focussed on external environment and its effect on behaviour. However, one of its weaknesses is that it has limited focus on relationship between behaviour and environmental events.

How is this contradiction explained?

The Behavioural Perspective is that which is focused on the external environment and its effects on behaviour.

Regarding the 'weaknesses' of this perspective; the behavioural perspective is 'limiting as it leaves out other variables or possible explanations'. Thus, the focus of this perspective is limited to the relationship between behaviour and environmental events, as it does not deal with other factors like genes, cognitions, etc.
