    I'm so confused lmao- for intense fandom is the levels of fandom the same as AAM? (Entertainment-social, intense personal, borderline pathological?)
    What's AAM?

    Don't understand what you mean.

    In my booklet.
    A01- Celebrity worship- Giles and Maltby study- entertainment, intense person and borderline-pathological is my theory.
    A02- Maltby study (can also be used for social psychological of attraction to celebrity)
    Entertainment, intense person and borderline-pathological. Is my support study.
    Methodological issues.

    Can someone explain to me why this is related to validity for schizophrenia for A02

    It states

    One piece of research by Harrison et al found that incidence rates of schizophrenia is 8 times more likely in black-carribean groups compared to white groups. This could be due to poor social housing, isolation etc. However one other alternative is that misdiagnosis might play a part.

    Anyone doing Media Psychology help! just wanted to know if we need to know any AO2 for the Hovland-Yale model and the ELM, because i have looked at a bunch of past paper questions but all they ask is to outline (A01) and/or apply it to a certain scenario but never asks to evaluate(AO2)...

    We only need studies that support for A02 as they are needed to back up the points made in the application questions. If there was a 4+ 6 then we can just use them to evaluate.

    a) they literally could ask outline and evaluate? nothing stopping them
    b) some of the application questions require psychological research to back up your ideas - research here is good cos some of it directly link e.g. speed of speech etc
    c) it wouldn't hurt to learn a few studies just in case

    I think you could say it's invalid due to the fact that understanding between white clinicians and black patients is difficult to establish because there may be language barriers and different mannerisms. The fact that the DSM was developed in the West for use in the West can mean there is imposed etic when trying to diagnose other groups with it. This is because there are cultural differences which mean some behaviours are seen as symptoms of schizophrenia in some cultures but viewed as completely normal in other cultures (e.g hearing voices is seen as a magical and spiritual experience in some cultures).

    Idk if this has been asked before, but in Jan 2011 I think and 2010 they asked 14 markers in media. Can they still has 14 markers, as there hasn't been one since 2011?

    Because I don't know whether to just revise 10 marks maximum for everything, or whether I need to revise 14 markers as well?

    Thank you!

    Does anyone know the maximum amount of marks they can ask in a question for addiction? Normally the max is 10, but I'm scared I won't learn enough if there is a higher mark question than 10. Thanks x

    Just to clarify media you get 3/4 questions. The questions are no bigger than 10 marks in size.
