Hi, I know the main explanations of prejudice and discrimination are
-Authoritarian Personality
-Stereotyping
-Realistic Conflict Theory
-Social Identity Theory

But I need to tie them to their relevant psychological approach, I think Authoritarian Personality is Psychoanalytical and Stereotyping is Cognitive but I'm not sure on the rest? Any help matching them would be greatly appreciated, or telling me about any significant explanations I've missed. I'll try and return the favour too. Thank you!

Prejudiace is an unjustified or incorrect attitude (usually negative )towards an individual based solely on the individual's membership of a social group.Examples could be sex,race, or socioeconomic background.It means to 'prejudge"a person or a group.

Discrimination is the behaviour or actions , usually negative , towards an individual or group of people, especially on the basis of sex,race or socio-economic background.
