    Stress Inoculation Training
    Meichenbaum's method
    Form of CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy)

    3 stages/phases:
    1. Conceptualisation
    Clients are encouraged to relive stressful situations and to analyse various features. (eg: What was stressful? How did you cope? Was it successful?)

    2. Skills training and practice
    One key element of a stressful situation
    Client is taught relaxation techniques to help them cope

    3. Real life application
    Client goes into real world and puts training to test
    Still maintain contact with therapist

    And then you would need to evaluate it...
    If it asks to 'Outline and evaluate psychological methods of stress management' you would also talk about Hardiness Training and evaluate that as well

    Does anyone know how you would answer a question like this:

    How have psychologists investigated the relationship between stress and the immune system?(4 marks)
    I know I could use several studies such as Marucha et al and Keicolt-Glaser et al but I'm not so sure what the question is asking me to do here? Is it asking for the methodology of research (what the researcher actually did) or it's findings ? or both? confusedd

    Its argued that increase dopamine causes schizophrenia . Antisypchotics work by blocking the action of the neurotransmitter dopamine in the brain by binding to and not stimulating. Atypical antipsychotic drugs act by temporarily occupying dopamine receptors and then rapidly dissociating (disconnect seperate) which allows normal dopamine transmission.

    Sounds kinda confusing but all ya got to know is too much dopamine can cause schizophrenia symptoms. so these drugs work by reducing the level of dopamine and as a result treats individuals suffering from such symptoms. Well thats my understanding, hope it made sense.

    worlds in bold are important, the question asks how psychologists such as KielcoltGlaser et al carry out their research. What did they do to find the relationship between stress and the immune system?

    This thread seems to be dying o.O, you can ask questions here and ims ure you'll get a few replies here
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...1#post42851991

    If I saw an outline question worth 8 marks , I would approch it in the same way as a 12 marker. For example outline research into conformity, we had this question in our mock and well all I did was talk bout Asch aim, procedure, findings and conclusion which got me 3 marks :/ my teacher told me if I went into variations and maybe a weakness I would of received full marks,.

    If the question is worth 6 marks, then I wouldn't bother with any A02 points. For example outline the biological approach to psychopathology - Id go into, genes determining brain chemistry and neuroatonomy, viral infections and genetic inheritance but no weaknesses.

    For unit 2 for defining abnormalities do we need to know all the criteria for failure to function adequately and ideal mental health and can we be asked a 12 mark question on one of them?

    Hey there folks, just wondering if there are any fellow psych students out there sitting any proportion of the AQA Psychology A, at AS this June?

    I am currently studying with a home learning course and can work at my own pace (no compulsory exam dates) but plan to do the full AS in June this year. Anybody else on my boat?
    Hi, I'm trying to start with something like that and was looking at the AQA syllabus. Where are you getting your study material from, do you have a private tutor or something? Any advice about what to do would be helpful!

    I didn't even know failure to function adequately had a criteria? Isn't the criteria the extent to which a person can cope with day to day living which could be pretty much anything (e.g. going to sleep)
    I do know that you should learn the criteria for ideal mental health because there have been questions where they have asked you two identify one or two criteria from this definition of abnormality. I remember using SSIAAM -self-attitudes, self actualization, integration, autonomy, acurate perception of reality and mastery of environment.
