    genetic explanations of aggression
    instututional aggression
    i quite like those predictions - expect for the influence of childhood experiences one!

    for aggression though, can they specify genetics? i thought they could just ask for bio explanation?

    and thanks for the help with the ao2!

    Yes they can, in the spec they specify neural/hormonal and genetics not too keen on them, but I'm not feeling v confident atm! Hopefully I can cover it all by the time exam comes!

    ive been trailing the internet for info on Intrasexual Competition for Evolutionary Explanations of Anorexia. and all it comes up with is some posh articles which i cannot decipher at all. Does anyone have a detailed, but precise explanation for it? any help is appreciated!
    p.s. Isnt Intrasexual Competition when females are trying to eat small amounts and stay thin to appear more attractive- but then other sites say that women want 'nubile' (hourglass) figures in order to stay attractive and appear to have a childbearing body, but then how can both be true?

    Hey guys, I'm retaking this as I completely made a mess of this in Jan,
    I'm attempting to learn the content BEFORE the night before this time haha.

    those who are doing aggression:
    Is it essential that we learn about cue arousal/relative deprivation - or it okay just to learn the deindividuation theory?

    Yeah, the spec only says two theories, the most common being deindividuation and SLT, but you might want to learn cue arousal/relative deprivation as they are fairly simple concepts that could help your AO2 a lotttt...

    Has anyone planned out their essay's yet? like, the way you're gonna write them if that question comes up? Like thiss:

    Describe and Evaluate one social psychological theory of aggression

    AO1 - Bandura's SLT of aggresion
    AO2 - Wolfgang & Ferracuti, cultural diff.
    AO2 - High Reliability
    AO2 - Low Ecological validity
    AO2 - Reductionist
    AO2 - Ethical Issues
    Contrast theory - Deindividuation

    Do you think this would be enough for a 24 marker? Does anyone else have essay plans like this, on Aggression, Sleep/Bio Rhythms and Eating Behaviour? Cheers

    Yeah thats fine, Remember you can also do the BOBO doll study and evaluate it, that will be like half a page?
    we also learnt a study by Ellison and one by Rhem
    but the stuff you listed should be enough

    My psychology teacher was assuming that institutional aggression may come up as well. I dont really like that topic though

    Oh nice! - different course i assume ?
    and yeah i think institutional aggression is a possibility, we learn to talk about:
    the importational model
    the situational model

    and then as alternative possibilities / approaches
    Deindividuation
    conformity

    those topics have already come up. the sleep disorders and instutional aggression came up as 25 markers as well so i really dont think they would do those again.
