    One mark or maybe non-depending on how generous the examiner is for example you didn't explain why it is oversimplified for example is oversimplified because of a study done by shallice et al on a patient called KF who had impaired verbal skills but a good visual skills. So MSMM doesn't explain this.

    Another point could have been about how rehearsal is not the only way information enters the long term memory which was concluded by Lockhart et al.


    I would say your answer is not detailed enough but then again you never know
    hope this helps x
    it doesnt need to be detailed because it is a 4 marker but 2 points so 1 point gets 2 marks, i did not need to explain why it is oversimplified because t already is and this automatically gets me a mark i would assume i did try to explain by elaborating on it and this is why im not sure whether i get the 2 or 1 mark for it

    Ive just looked at the psych book revision guide and bang it says the main criticism is it oversimplfies memory structures and processes which is very similar to my point so it probably gets me 1 and the kf is a seperate study on unitary stores

    keep your notes short
    also if your notes are long then highlight the key parts
    short notes help you remember the main important details and then during the exam you can expand on them in detail
    hope this helps a bit

    Can someone explain the Freud approach to abnormality. I don't understand it properly, this is my idea of it so far:

    Freud believed that the subconcious has is allocated into three parts: the ID, the Ego and the Super-ego. The ID is the part of the subconcious that urges a person to their aggressive and sexual biological drives, the ego is the balance between the superego and ID, it is your personality, and the Super-ego is the part of the subconcious that is responsible for your morals and ideal self.

    He believes that three parts are in constant tension with each-other and if one is more strong than another: abnormality may occur.

    According to the Freudian approach the ID, ego and Super-ego are developed through the psychosexual stages.

    At 0-1 the oral stage occurs, if the person becomes fixated at this stage then they are likely to develop obesity and smoking disorders
    At 2-3 the anal stage occurs, if the person becomes fixated at this stage they are likely to develop OCD, or become extremely kind or generous.
    At 3-6 the phallic stage occurs, if the person becomes fixated at this stage they are likely to develop sexual problems, such as sexual addiction or masturbation problems.

    The phallic stage occurs because of the Oedipus complex. The Oedipus complex is when a male baby within the phallic stage develops intense love for the mother and perceives the father as a threat. It generally ends when the boy notices they have similar characteristics as the dad, but if this is not sorted it can have consequences.

    The same is for the girl, but it is called the Electra complex, she hates her mother because of penis-envy. (??)

    Is that okay? I don't understand how I link in the Oedipus and Electra complex to a question and to be honest I don't really understand the complexes. I mean what is Penis envy and how would a child so small know about such thing?

    I haven't discussed half the stuff you've written about.

    I said that the psychodynamic approach is based on the assumption that abnormal behaviour is created by conflicts in the unconscious mind.

    Freud suggested that these conflicts can be traced back to our early childhood experiences, as this is what makes us prone to mental health problems.

    The psychodynamic approach suggests that the unconscious mind is made up of the superego, id and ego. The superego is the morality principle and if it is dominant, it could lead to OCD as it causes the individual to restrict themselves from even socially acceptable pleasures. The id is the pleasure principle and if this is dominant then it could lead to immoral behaviour and actions.

    The ego balances the demands of the superego and id, and if maintained well, the individual will become well-adjusted. According to this model, we progress through psychosexual stages, such as the oral, anal, phallic and general stage. Fixation at any of these stages will lead to psychological problems. For example, fixation at the anal stage may lead to OCD and fixation at the phallic stage may lead to Schizophrenia: as the person has not developed a sense of reality.

    Lastly, ego defense mechanisms balance the demands of the superego and id by distorting reality to protect the ego from distress. However if this is overused then it could lead to abnormal behaviour.

    However, my teacher said we don't need to know about it and I haven't seen it in the past papers yet.
    What do we need to know about it?
