    I wrote about how cocaine ruins neurotransmitter receptors and therefore more difficult to come off drugs, for a biological explanation.

    I wrote about classical conditioning, social learning theory and operant conditioning (token economy) for the learning approach, and views will differ with in.

    What did you write??

    I wrote about how in biological it states behaviour is predetermined so we can't control choice and stuff on dopamine but I had no idea what about learning theory

    I wrote about learning from role models and how the euphoric feeling of cocaine acts as positive reinforcement.

    It wasn't that bad..
    I talked about the steps
    E.g. hierarchy of fear objects- least to most
    Then i talked about relaxation method and then fear objects are shown while maintaining relaxation technique
    Weaknesses are... cannot treat complex phobias...
    Positives... ethical because informed consent, right to withdraw, phobias and no distress as objects are shown gradually not like flooding
    Dunno if thats right

    I put the same although I didn't put about it not being able to treat complex phobias :/ I started with functional analysis then the hierarchy of anxiety, relaxation methods and then gradual exposure of the phobia starting with images then toys etc then a small part of the phobia, I used birds as an example so put a feather for that part and then the bird itself
