    Ohhhhhhhh ok cool. And haha good structure tbh!! Mine is basically :define a science and Alport's criteria, Kuhn's idea of a science. Then Eysenck saying it is a science due to the lab method. Objectivity and how it is sometimes and isn't sometimes achieved. Hilborn's chaos theory regarding objectivity. Kuhn's paradigm approach, Palermo's criticism of it. Falsifiability and Freud as an example of bad science but Broadbent's filter theory of attention being falsifiable. Social constructionist and humanistic psychologists saying it isn't a science and doesn't need to be. Then Silfe and Williams talking about how regarding it as a science results in greater funding :/


    Also sorry for typos cos I'm using this itouch haha
    oh yeah - I talk about how Eysencks theory that people with high neuroticism are more likely to be suscepitble to disease or something but this has been falsified - hence psychology is like a science according to Popper (scientific theories should falsifiable)

    Well I dont know what they could ask ... they could say Is human behaviour influenced by genetics or environment.

    Or maybe they could say 'behaviour is due to the environment - discuss whether this is true'

    So you basically still look at the Nature argumnts e.g. Biologial approah an Nurture e.g. Behaviourists.

    well social skills training involves improving communication of the offenders e.g. good eye contact.
    Spence and Marzilla found that this treatment did reduce levels of conviction rates .... however it was found after interviewing that the group did commit crimes but they just got away with more due to being able to speak well to police (lol!)
    so it doesnt actually work very well at what its meant to do.

    Restorative justice is basically (google it) where the victim and offender and other people all work together to think of what should be done regarding the sentence or compensation. Uses things like the offender talks to the victim. Its good because victim understands where offender is coming from and offender feels guilty so less likely to reoffend.
    However its not useful for victimless crimes e.g. shoplifting because there isnt really a direct victim.

    Do you study the Memory topic?

    I was meaning to ask you about that actually... castration ... :eek3:
    is it actually effective lol

    Heres some more Token stuff:
    Rice did a follow up on a place which used token economies and found no benefits of it so the treatment isnt effective in the long term. Blackburn said token economics offer little rehabilitative value.

    I also have the NY case study. With Pollard being the critic of the method.

    Well I hope the understudied comes up lol its one that I can actually do ok in lol.
    If you go to the Revision Notes section of TSR and navigate through it you will find some good notes on that essay.

    Or go back a few pages on this thread and I have posted a very brief plan of my essay.
