    Yes, strengths & weaknesses of determinism will be great. (I could probably reverse them to make them strengths and weakness of free will :P) Thanks!
    I'll PM you my whole essay as my examples make more sense written out fully than if I just write it down in point form, et me just finish copying it up from paper

    If reductionism and determinism come up i'd actually cry! Praying for Individual Differences, Behaviourist or Psychodynamic

    Yeah that's it, like in G&S example, after describing the study, then say why it fits in with the approach, debate, issue etc. The point I'm making about part a is just make sure your explanation as to why its deterministic fits in with your definition of determinism in part a, as is they say completely different things then you have contradicted yourself, part a is the definition and part b is why the study fits in with that definition.
    Thanks

    Oh no, not psychodynamic!

    But I'd like for behaviourist to come up. And tbh, I think it will.

    I would hate psychodynamic, as there aren't many studies to talk about! What studies would you use? There's Freud, T&C, Farrington, Y&S, is there any others?

    I'd just stick to Thigpen and Freud mainly because they're easier to relate to the psychodynamic perspective! Using A2 studies for this perspective would confuse you! Narrowing the 2 studies to freud and thigpen for everything would be far easier i find

    If Behaviourist did come up, what would you all expect the part (d) question about compare behaviourist with ____? Other than Physiological (as they asked this the last time the Physiological approach came up) Cognitive maybe? Social?

    But they're all AS! My memory has been used up for all the A2 studies for the G543 exam. :sad:. And Thigpen & Cleckley is manageable, but Freud - I could never learn that study!

    Hmm, social one would be hard to compare in terms of difference, without being too specific. i.e. social approach states that we learn through our situation, whereas behaviourist states we learn through classical, operant and reinforcement. They're both reductionist and have qualitative/quantitative data. What would you say a difference is? o.O

    Cognitive is a possibility, however when they did the cognitive approach in Jan 2010 they did it with behaviourist. Do you think it would be too obvious for it to be compared to the psychodynamic perspective?

    Similarities:
    Both approaches use lab experiments (Milgram and Watson and Raynor)
    Both approaches therefore lack ecological validity as you can't apply the results to real life obedience or phobia development

    Differences:
    The social approach emphasises the role of learning from others (Bandura) whereas Behaviourist focuses on learning through conditioning (Watson and Raynor)

    I thought Bandura is behaviourist? Learning through imitation?

    It can also be applied in a social context due to the "social learning theory"

    Oooh okay. But I think it's social and behaviourism involves learning from others, and behaviourism is not limited to conditioning but also imitation from others. :/
