    For Little Albert, do we need to know the WHOLE procedure? It's just far too detailed, I can't remember it all.
    break the procedure down into the most important points, there is a lot but just remember the most important points. i have a shortened version of the procedure if you want me to send it to you?

    Twin studies and adoption studies are part of methodology aswell as evaluating them. Other stuff in methodology are PET/MRI scans and animals in lab experiments such as the lesion studies. Some people may have different topics to learn depends what the teacher teaches. If you want the adoption and twin study notes i can PM them to you. x

    Key issues transgender,
    Intersex - Born with unclear genitaliar, the doctor/parent decides which gender is most suited to the genitals, can be very unethical as the child has no consent or is to young to be informed about whats going on... also there was a study conducted that 13 males were born intersex which was psychologically harmful
    Gender Dyspohoria, feeling trapped in the wrong gender, can be psychologically harmfull as the person is confused about which gender to belong in, then at a certain age decieds which gender is most apropriate towards how they feel, this can be done by surgery, and injecting either testostrone or oestrogeon.. no real ethical issues and concerns however as the person is 100% physically healthy surgery is a risk
    Heomaphordiates, born with both genitalia can be very underconforting and can lead to psychological harm, as the person or parents of the child would not know how to actually treat them,
    the factors, are mainly age.. at a certain age the person can choose which gender they belong to.. not just regarding their parents or doctors decision if to young
    Social - Counsilling Biological - surgery
    sorry about late reply

    :confused:
    we need to learn 3 different books
    Psychodynamic
    Biological
    Learning
    Each book contains 2 main case studies which can be up to 12 marks in the exam
    For Psychodyanmic - Little Hans and Dibs
    For Biological - Doctor J money and Gottessmans and Sheilds
    For Learning - Watson and Reiner and Bandaura,Ross and Ross
    for all 3 there are evaluations of gender development
    we need to know methodology e.g brain scanning: MRI scaning/Pet scanning, animal studys,adoption/twin studys,psycoanalysis etc... its not that hard thinking about it, if you need any questions feel free to ask and il be happy to reply and answer

    Oral, Anal, Phallic, Latency, Genetial
    Sample of 57 twins where one was diagnosed with schizophrenia were chosen. Used same sex twin. Each twin assessed to see if they were MZ or DZ twins. 24 pairs of MZ and 33 pairs of DZ twins.
    MZ twins- 42% of co-twin of schizophrenic diagnosed as schizophrenic. 37% diagnosed with different form of psychiatric abnormality. 21% normal
    DZ twin- 9% co twin diagnosed as schizophrenic. 36% diagnosed with psychiatric abnormality. 55% normal
    Gottessman had a large sample size- had used 57 twins whereas Money had one set of twins.
    Both had same sex twins ( Money had same sex twins originally)
    High ecological validity as both researchers did not control the schizophrenia or circumcision
    5 year old boy taken to freud suffering from phobia of horses. Freud saw hans once or twice. Information came mostly through hans father.
    At age 3, hans developed interest in his own penis. Age 5 mother threatened to cut it off if he did not stop playing with it. Developed fear a white horse would bite him. Hans fathee related to freud that this was probably related to horses large penis. Father objected him into getting into parents bed in the morning. Hans feared going out of the house incase he encounted a horse. Fear became limited to horses with black harness noses, hans father interpreted this as his black moustache. Hans had two fantasises: he had several imaginery children, asked who the mother was, said why mummy and you’re granddad. Also imagined a plumber fitting him with a bigger penis.
    Freud saw phobias as expression of Oedipus
