    How much would I need to write for 6 marks of AO1 about the psychodynamic approach e.g. can I just mention the id, ego and superego and ego defence mechanisms or would I have to include the stages of development as well. Same goes for the biological approach; can I just mention like genes and neuroanatomy or do I have to talk about all four???
    Depends on how you elaborate, if it is a good elaboration you talk about 2 or 3 assumption otherwise more

    I was thinking to remember only 3 of the Rosenhan and Seligman 'failure to function adequately' points e.g. maladaptive behaviour etc. Do you think it's enough or do I need to know all of them?

    It's been taken off the specification but I can explain:

    It's part of biological psychology (stress)

    Emotion-focused strategies aim to reduce the negative effects of stressors by making an individual feel positive about a stressful situation such as:

    - looking for distractions
    - preparing oneself for the worst possible outcome
    - keeping active to avoid thinking about the stressor
    - denying that the situation exists or is a problem
    - distancing oneself from the problem
    - altering the way a problem is perceived, for example seeing the humour in the situation

    These obviously don't really focus on the problem at hand as much as the impact of it.

    Problem-focused strategies aim to confront them directly and focus on dealing with the causes of stressful situations, examples of these are:

    - Not turning to alternative activities to put off dealing with stressful situations. For example not gaming in order to put off revision for your PSYA2 exams
    - Taking personal responsibility/charge of stressful situations, e.g. researching details of a dangerous illness which you've recently found out that you have (god forbid!)
    - Weighing up the strengths and weaknesses of each possible means of dealing with stressful situations.

    In a nutshell (TL;DR version), problem-focused aims to tackle problems head-on while emotion-focused aims to deal with the negative impacts without dealing with the root causes! Kind of like psychological therapies VS drug treatments.

    my teacher hasn't taught the class any and I can't recall learning any but
    we have to learn the approaches and their treatments, then both strengths and limitations for the approach and treatments :unimpressed:
    Yeah I we haven't done any studies for abnormality either which I'm happy about! But I'm not looking forward to social that's my weakest topic out of the whole of psychology😔☺️

    Unilateral/Bilateral
    Muscle relaxant/ anaesthetic given
    Oxygen given, current half a second
    Seizure 1 minute
    Given 3 times a week for 5 weeks
    Do we need to know this? I'm learning everything in minimal detail which I know isn't great but I've never been taught about ECT in detail?
    Also, this has probably already been asked but do we need 6 evaluation points for AO2 or is 4 elaborated points enough for 6 marks?

    How can you use sex to evaluate?

    Probably best to talk about something else anyway.

    As far as I know ... No. When they ask you to "discuss" it usually means outline so not evaluate. The marks should tell you whether it's both outline and evaluate.

    Individual differences, some people may have an active sex live and because of the release of oxytocin and endorphins they are less likely to develop a stress related illness.
