    We just need to know the basics that Wundt in the 1800s started the emergency of psychology with his institute in Germany. Studied introspection, however this wasn't very objective and lacked validity.

    That's basically all you really need to know, then how some psychologies, eg Allport agreed that psychology can be a science as it has the same aims.

    Then lastly, you should know the rest of the topics that developed Psychology further - Behaviourism, Coginitive Psychology and Biopsychology/The Biological Approach but revising the Approaches topic I'd assume you'd know this naturally anyway.

    Then just cover Psychopathology and Research Methods *ugh* and you're good to go. God, I hate Research Methods!

    Also can anybody list the key assumptions for the various approaches?
    Idk if they're generic or just what they use at my school tbh, but the general opening sentence to define each of them;
    The only one I know is SLTheory : Social learning theory suggests that behaviour is learnt through the observation and imitation of others.

    Behaviourists: only interested in observable behaviour. They believe in doing objective and controlled lab experiments and say that animals and humans are alike.

    Cognitive: believe that the internal mental processes should be studied scientifically and study areas that were neglected by behaviourists e.g. memory, thinking, perception. They believe that the private processes cannot be oberserved so they indirectly study them by making inferences.

    Biological: everything that is psychological is at first biological. They must look at biological structures. They believe that the mind lives in the brain and all feelings and thoughts have a physical basis.

    Social learnjng theorists: we learn through observation and imitate others within a social context. We learn from experience (direct learning) and through observation (indirect).
