    That's my problem - I don't know whether to be using all the studies like Mead and Berry and Williams and Best as AO1 or AO2 because either way it is leaving the other section completely limited??
    For AO1, we learnt about how in Western cultures, 2 sexes are generally recognised and this is determined by genitalia whereas in non-Western cultures a 3rd or even 4th gender is recognised and that some cultures have individuals who were born male but identify as female (for example, Hijras from India and Fa'afafines from Samoa). I hope this is helpful.

    Pretty sure they can and are likely to be separate. The way I learnt them was as separate questions at least.
    Thanks! We were taught them separately but I couldn't remember seeing a question where they were completely separated

    Personally I'd do the behavioural approach aka SLT because with SLT being a thing in so many topics I'd be pretty sure I've got at least a couple marks lol

    (also I assume you mean Anorexia not anxiety?)
    Yeah I do but I havent learned that, I have learned Media, Perfectionism (personality), Culture and Ethnicity. These are all quite small paras, but together they'd get me the marks, kinda nervous if i only get to pick one?

    I think they've given you the choice before - either explain biological or psychological - and I'd imagine that's as close as they'd get, I don't think they'd expect an essay that details them separately

    Ah well SLT would probably go under media there (people see role models on TV and develop AN trying to starve themselves to look like models, they get positive reinforcement from people when they lose weight which makes them keep doing it (operant conditioning) also they associate super skinny people on TV as successful which makes them want to be the same as them (classical conditioning).

    Then support it with the Becker Fiji study if you have that one?

    I've noticed that examiners in the report often complain about student not mentioning 'implications' of IDA's and evaluations. How do we do this? for example if I mention that a study conducted on animals cannot be generalised to the human population, what next?

    Yeah I do, about that study actually, It goes that they wanted role models on TV (thin models), and wanted to become right them right? But the disadvantage says that 'Instructional intervention occured due to exposure to idealised female images' This is what it says in the book, what does that actually mean?

    Using your example, a study that cannot be generalised to humans would mean that the study support is weak and/or questionable, meaning that the study as a whole is questionable and that more research must be done as it isn't sufficient by itself.

    ... Honestly I have no idea I've never heard that bit. Sounds like maybe they're saying that exposing them to thin models was bad as it lead to AN? And the interventions were to help? I'm not sure, my textbook doesn't have that bit, sorry!

    Anyone got any IDAs for parental investment
    -Outdated - women don't need no man these days
    -Doesn't take adopted/fostered kids into account (why do people invest in kids that aren't passing on their genes?)
    -Reductionist - reduces complex experiences into simply doing everything due to getting survival advantages
