Hi,
I am doing a new specification in A-Level Psychology and really need some help with section B. Okay, so I'm supposed to know these debates:
Situational-individual
Reductionism-Hollism
Free will-determinism
Nature-nurture
Usefulness of research
Ethical considerations
Conducting socially sensitive research
Psychology as a science.

And... I'm supposed to be able to answer questions on these in relation to:
Principles and concepts of each debate;
Different possitions within each debate;
Research to illustrate different possitions within each debate;
Applications of different possitions within each debate, and lastly
How each debate is similar/different to other debates.

Not expecting all the answers to these questions, just one would be extremely helpful! I am struggling with this topic but get everything else.

Any help would be much appreciated,

Thanks.

Sorry, wasn't very clear. I wasn't insinuating it's too difficult. For example, being able to find how the reductionist explanation is useful is no where to be found. I know it helps to eatable a cause-and-effect relationship but I can find any useful information for the exam due to it being s new specification.
