    Are people using DSM IV or DSM V for this?
    And if DSM V, are you explaining differences between it and the previous one?

    I know it's far easier said than done, but take each day at a time and don't think about the long term goal (the exam). You'll find it's easier to retain information, it's probably the stress stopping you. Just do what you can! Like I said, you're well ahead of me!

    For unit 3 I'm doing eating behaviours, aggression and intelligence.

    I understand all the content in eating behaviours and aggression but I'm stuck with intelligence. Unfortunately we have a teacher for the intelligence unit who is really lovely, but when she explains the topics, she makes it confusing so we all end up making our own notes. Does anyone have notes for the outline and evaluation including research for the evolutionary explanations of human intelligence and notes for cultural explanations for IQ tests. They're the only areas that I'm stuck on and would be grateful if anyone could help!
    I've had a look at various textbooks, but they are all rubbish as they have no relevant pieces of research evidence in them!

    Also, you know when questions say ' evaluate research into...' , do you have to jump straight into the research findings that support or refute the theory, or can you include a little bit of outline of the theory. I know this question may sound silly, but I'm just asking because if you jump into research without explaining the theory, the evaluation won't make sense

    Are you saying dont use cultural bias? For example in the Social exchange essay im doing, im going to talk about cultural bias because it directly relates to the theory. E.g. Mogmaddon, found research suggesting in europe people prefer equality, wheras in US people prefer equity. This shows the bias even within the western cultures.

    That would be a bit of my point but is this not accepted?
    No I meant not to use culture bias in every essay - of course there are some essays such as the social exchange theory where culture bias is very relevant. But in certain topics, for example theories of sexual selection, culture bias may not be as applicable/relevant.

    It's not a silly question - a lot of people struggle with this. I've always thought that, even if a purely AO2 question came up, you'd still have to end up including some AO1 in order to show what it is you're evaluating. Just try not to go into detail or you risk wasting time on stuff you won't really get marks for!

    I will be uploading some revision slides for schizophrenia soon, including psychological explanations and treatments. First i'm going to focus on unit 3, though. I could message you to let you know when it's uploaded so you can check it out?

    In addiction do we need a AO2 point for everything e.g for the maintenance of gambling in learning explanations?

    No, normally there's a study for each theory for gambling and smoking - so initiation, maintenance and relapse have one study between them

    Is anyone learning neural and hormonal mechanisms of aggression separately or together? Because I can't see it coming up separately and the loopa answers write them together but there's always the chance

    The question will normally be something like outline and evaluate neutral and/or hormonal mechanisms of aggression...

    My teacher said it really doesn't matter which one you talk about. Just include points like what DSM is and how its continuously being improved etc.
    I think the main points you need to elaborate on is the reliability and validity of DSM.
    Hope this helps
