    Just wondering,

    Say you have a question like outline and evaluate psychological therapies for schizophrenia, If i outline and evaluate one in detail, and the other in not so much detail will I lose marks? Cause I have tons of evaluation for drug therapy, but small amounts for ECT because in the book they isn't much.

    Think of it like a maths equation...

    Nominal data + independent groups = chi square
    Oridinal data + Independent = Mann Whitney U
    Ordinal + repeated/matched = Wilcoxon
    Ordinal + correlation = spearmans rho

    I have odd ways of remembering things 🙄
    Would Interval be the same as what you have written for ordinal?

    I'm literally doing this topic right now and came to ask about it hah. My teacher told us that if possible we should just focus on drugs (both typical and a-typical) because ECT isn't really used in this country anymore. And I remember someone telling me after the PSYA3 that if you focus on one and then do another point in less detail they can knock you down for it, so I was thinking that just focusing on drugs is better?

    What points have you made for that essay?
    Basically I've done reliability - all the boring stuff then I said Carson reviewed DSM fixed inter-rater. Wilks and RBANS.

    A02 - **** loads on Rosenhan (half a page)
    Whaley found inter rater correlations rater +0.11. Prescott analysed test retest In 14 sz stable over 6 months. Copeland and diagnosis across cultures.

    Validity- again all the boring stuff. Buckley and comorbidity. Klostkotter and positive symptoms.

    A02- untreated comorbidity may be the cause of poor levels of functioning rather than sz, increase in suicide and then ethics.

    A bit brief but hope it gives you an outline haha!

    They say on mark schemes that when they ask for 2 of something, you don't get the top band unless it's balanced- i.e. you talk about both equally

    It's irritating I know but that's what is says

    I'm going to practice and going into more detail to learn the predictions (the ones that haven't come up has recently) and then skim through the other essays (and try to learn them if i have time... which is unlikely)!

    Have you learnt about cognitive therapy? You could use that instead because drug therapy is for the biological explanation... right?

    Oh damn I read the OP question wrong because we have ECT as a biological not psychological therapy so I automatically thought they meant biological. I do have cognitive as a psychological, haha sorry for the confusion!
