    Biological approach contributes with gender development, so surely learning and psychodynamic do too
    That's not the point, let me explain

    When you are describing a cotribution, you need to state the contribution ("biological explanation for gender" ), add some theory (which suggests genes, hormones and brain lateralisation are important...." ) then explain how this helps, HOW does it contribute to society?? So for example.. can help people undergoing gender reassignment as it suggests testosterone leads to masculine secondary sex characteristics, so we could give them testosterone injections to help with their transition

    You need to do that for each contribution if you want the (full) marks

    i bet they give us one where we have to write an aim, hypothesis and statistical tests involved (which i never bothered learning last year) - that hasn't come up ever and you know they're trying to be all scienceyi haaate social control it's so boring. i might just leave it out of revision and just wing that.
    I doubt they'd make us decide the stats test as it's not on the a2 specSocial control is easy tho, it's literally just really briefly describing treatments and evaluating them in terms of practical and ethical issues.. don't let the name throw you :lol:

    Does anyone know the likelihood of the AS contributions to society coming up?
    99.9%
    (Original post by Rsprcy)
    In the clinical applied questions about treatments- if it doesn't say what the persons condition is, can you write an answer on a specific disorder i.e. schizophrenia or is it supposed to be general??
    If they want schizophrenia they will specify, if they want your other disorder they will specify "other than schizophrenia", if they do neither of these then it's fine to do either

    We don't have to answer questions like this on Edexcel so I doubt anyone would know

    Ok, but for learning could i say it contributes to society as it helps us understand transgender which the biological explanation doesnt explain

    I thought it was just two? I've done most of the past papers and haven't come across needing 3 social controls

    It depends how many marks it is, if it's 5 marks you should just give the symptoms and incidence rates I believe. If it's worth more marks, maybe give an explanation

    ok i guess not transgender, in particular but it does help us understand gender - im sure this is a valid contribution, the textbook says there are a variety of contributions where you can pick any. Gender was also a big theme in the unit 2 paper.
    The textbook also uses understanding gender for psychodynamic so i guess you may have made a mistake

    helps us understand and sheds light on why people may feel like they are in the wrong body and need treatment to become themselves.
    this is the contribution. yours was weak and would gain no marks.

    K i rĺy cba to repeat myself.. >never< say that a theory helps us to understand. Cos ok well the whole of psychology as a discipline helps us understand, it's what you then do/suggest to do with that understanding/knowledge that makes it a contribution/application

    Its like if you were asked for a practical application of Genie and u say it helped us to understand language development and whether there was a sensitive period. K so what? Yh there was one.. so we should encourage talking and singing, when a baby points at something tell them what its called to aid their language development while it's still cruitial

    We wouldnt know (lets pretend) how important is to talk and sing to kids if we didnt know about the critical period thanks to Genie. This is what makes it have 'practical application'

    I feel as tho i cud be a teacher but still gna get a B

    Edit: i rly wouldnt sugest using gender cos its hard to make a valid contribution point, it becomes superficial

    Is it necessary to know studies for each research method in detail? As far as I know a question on them hasn't come up

    Also what are the 3 study is details you guys are doing?

    I was taught Rosenhan (1973, Goldstein (1999) and Silberg (1999) (not sure about silberg since I've never seen it in a mark scheme)

    I don't think so, they can't ask you to 'describe loftus and Palmer' for example with regards to a laboratory experiment

    You need to know Rosenhan for DSM, you need to know Goldstein for schizophrenia, pick any study for the 3rd into your chosen disorder

    i didnt mean to say understanding transgender, i meant gender in general, which helps society to accept and help such people in order to accept who they are in order to maintain good health if appropriate

    sorry i meant the contribution to society the learning approach brings is 'understanding gender', both the psychodynamic and biological approach are titled 'understanding gender' for their contributions
