    Yes of course, it's freuds psychosexual development, which is part of his psychodynamic approach. According to the theory, whilst a child is developing they go through a series of stages where the id seeks gratification through different erogenous zones. If a child is over or under gratified at one of these stages, it is possible for them to become fixated at this stage and this will have an impact later in adult life.
    1. The oral stage: pleasure is gained from eating and sucking. Weaning is the most important development achievement. Fixation at this stage may cause smoking addictions or eating disorders later in life.
    2. The anal stage: pleasure is gained from controlling bowel movements and bladder control. Becoming 'potty-trained' and using the toilet are key developmental achievements. Fixation at this stage may cause OCD, anxiety or cleanliness problems.
    3. At this stage a child becomes aware of its gender. Gratification comes from stimulation of the genitals. Development at this stage is different between boys and girls. Oedipus complex occurs for boys which is where all boys are in love with there mum and hate their dad and are jealous of him. Electra complex/penis envy occurs for girls, girls have penis envy.
    I don't think you need to know these last 2 but I'll tell you anyway.
    4. Latency stage: the focus is on social development rather than psychosexual. It is sometimes regarded as the calm before the storm of adolescence.
    5. Genital stage: if conflicts earlier in development have been satisfactorily resolved; the greatest pleasure at this stage comes from mature relationships.
    I hope this helps☺️
    we haven't been taught this? I only briefly know about the ID, EGO and SUPEREGO and how Freud linked it to the iceberg?

    Yeah that will be fine we just put this into psychodynamic approach because it's his second part to it but then we don't explain the superego, id and ego we just talk about ego defence mechanisms and what happens if the superego because more dominant and if the id becomes more dominant so you'll be fine☺️

    We got told you don't need both because it always says daily hassles and/or life events, so we've only done life events I haven't got any studies for daily hassles. But for life events we do Holmes and Rahe and Rahe et al, in Holmes and Rahe they created the SRRS to rate life events, it is a questionnaire which contains 43 life events and they are all give a life change unit score from 1-100, and they said that when the total LCU score is added up if it is greater than 150 then you are at risk of stress related illness and this further rose by 50% with a score greater than 300, and then Rahe et Al is where he tested the SRRS, I hope this helped☺️

    Acute Stress: (SAM)
    - the hypothalamus activates the SNS
    - the SNS travels to the adrenal medulla
    - this releases adrenaline and noradrenaline stimulating the fight or flight response
    Effects: diluted pupils, increase heart beat and blood pressure and impaired digestion, if constant could lead to heart attack or heart disease

    Chronic Stress: (PAS)
    - the hypothalamus releases CRF
    - this travels to the pituitary glands which releases ACTH
    - this travels to the adrenal cortex and adrenal glands which releases cortisol
    Effects: sudden burst of energy, lowered sensitivity to pain, impaired cognitive performance and lowered immune system, if constant it can lead to a weak immune system and cancer

    I tweeted him asking about his predictions cuz I was a bit confused about whether or not he thinks the psychodynamic approach will come up and he replied 'I'll do a video for it by this weekend, I need to re-look at my paper 2 predictions!'
