    Original poster:

    Introduce it..
    Behaviourist approach (environmental determinism) - operant/classical conditioning, 'Little Albert' study by Watson & Rayner.. no freedom to choose our actions.. Bandura social learning theory.. arguments against it (views people as passive recipients of environment)
    Psychodynamic approach (psychic determinism) - deterministic.. unconscious forces.. structure of personality.. Thanatos and Eros instincts.. gender identity arising from Psychosexual Development.
    Determinism takes responsiblity from individual (Behaviourist = we murder because noise evokes arousal / Psychodynamic = eating disorders is media's fault).
    Humanistic approach (as evaluation) - believes in freewill.. determinism is reductionist.. behaviourists do not explain human capacity.. psychodynamic focuses too much on past, humanistic looks at our feelings now.. talk about XCarl Rogers, Maslow and Jahoda...
    Round off with Soft Determinism.
