    Ind dif - determinism as looks as factors we can't control eg gender mental illness etc so behaviour is predetermined
    - holism as it acknowledges everyones different and considers a variety of factors such as age gender mental health etc...
    - individual debate as it looks at the individual differences in people and how this shapes there behaviour

    Hope this helps
    thanks thats so helpful!

    erghhhhhhhhh why!!!!!! but wouldn't you still need an approach or a perspective to answer a debates or issues question?
    Yeah you would need to use approach and studies for debates and methods. But the like sets of questions dot necessarily have to be on an approach

    For this exam, i am cool with it as my teacher told the class to write a section b answer for individual differences, behaviourist and psychodynamic. Depending on which A2 topics everyone takes, there is a possible of 10 studies you only need to know but i've narrowed it down to 7 which are:

    Thigpen & Cleckley - Individual Differences and Psychodynamic
    Griffiths - Individual Differences and Behaviourist
    Bandura - Behaviourist
    Freud - Psychodynamic
    Watson & Raynor - Individual Differences and Behaviourist
    McGrath - Individual Differences and Behaviourist
    Yochelson & Samenow - Psychodynamic

    Here is an attachment of a Section B individual differences answer and a comparison table of the approaches and perspectives.
    Thanks SO much for this! Really helpful Just wondering, is there any chance you could put up your psychodynamic paper? (and behaviourist if you have time). I'm really stuck with how to link Thigpen and Cleckley to Psychodynamic??

    I hope you liked it as i do as well as it is a B grade answer.

    Part a was 4 marks out of 4.
    Part b was 6 marks out of 8.
    Part c was 8 marks out of 12.
    Part d was 4 marks out 8. (forgot to put this up.)
    Part e was 7 marks out of 8

    This gave me 29 marks out of 40 which is a B grade.
    OMG!!! seriously do we have so many sections for this exams?? is it different from the other units?? oh god now i am seriously scared !!!!

    There are only two sections (section A and section B) but there are several questions in each section. I recommend having a look at some past papers to familiarise yourself

    I feel like i know everything, but knowing the fact that this paper is out of 80 and each mark has more weight, especially in defining the difference between an A and a B by just 1 mark, worries me the most :/ So now i feel really **** and feels like i haven't done enough :s

    I could get both Section B Behaviourist and Psychodynamic perspectives done by today. If that's ok.

    Also the link to the psychodynamic perspective to T + C, is that they used projective tests as a way to measure personality.

    That's a good point. You could also mention that they used hypnosis during the therapy, which aims to access the unconscious mind, and that her MPD was believed to be (at least partly) caused by childhood conflict.

    I always start with the same thing no matter what the comparison is – ‘Both approaches have useful applications, for example…’
    You could also compare them on the methods they use, the assumptions they make, ethical issues, the type of data they collect etc.

    For the debates just make sure you know them all. The ones that have never come up are, holism, ethnocentrism, individual explanation, free will or determinism. I’m focussing on those more. Determinism fits really well with both behaviourism and psychodynamic, so I wouldn’t be surprised if that came up.

    ive made a list of comparison points for each approach, such as ethics, methods, applications and what they actually study

    ^ for some reason your post won't quote

    You don’t have to, but it’s recommended that you include a few.
    I only know Watson and Raynor, and McGrath from health and clinical.
