    Ive just made a few cue cards on all the main subject areas...
    made 4 on - schizophrenia, moral behaviour/agression, attachment and anorexia and how each approach treats them. I reading them out to my mum even though she isnt listening, to try and remember them..
    Also went through the book and made posters on each approach, including their limitations and strengths. Cognitive is one im most confused on at the moment..
    Now making some essay plans and trying to do past papers and failing.
    Thankfully i only need 13 marks tomorrow to get a B

    well thats more pyb1 stuff, but i suppose you could just put that some approaches are more scientific than others - for example humanism is unscientific and cognitive is scientific. Then assess the limitations and strengths of them being either scientific or non scientific - i.e cognitive can be too reductionist (can be good or bad), whereas humanism looks at the person as a whole (can be good or bad).

    you'll be asked something like -
    'explain how the ..... perspective has been applied in two areas of psychology'.
    so for anorexia each perspective would say:
    Biological - genes, hormones, damaged hypothalamus
    Behaviourist - learnt behaviour, media images influencial. (observation, imitation, internalisation)
    Cognitive - faulty thinking about weight, over sensitivity to external cues
    Humanist - out of control life, high incongruence, CCT to treat, lack of insight.
    Psychoanalysis - unconscious influencial - denial of being an adult, fixated at oral stage.

    For schizophrenia:
    - Biological - dopamine hypothesis
    - Behaviourist - learnt behaviour, copied from peers.
    - Cognitive - overload with sensory information, disrupted attention filter
    - Humanist - person chose to withdraw from mad world, journey of self discovery is needed
    - Psychoanalytical - overly developed Id, state of 'narcissism'.

    hahaaa i was pretty much reading most of it off my notes for ^ that thread! Trying to cram it all into my brain atm.
    Well according to that joe guy its going to be holism vs. reductionist and idiographic vs. nomothetic. I really really hope its not the mind-body debate - i HATE that one.
    good luck everyone.
