    We have always been told to learn both social psychological theories. No you're not being rude, it's fine!

    If I were you just do one, but I'd prioritise other essays as it isn't likely to come up! Don't worry about it

    Just to ask quickly, does anyone know if parent-offspring conflict (including sibling rivalry etc.) is still on the specification? I tried looking it up but couldn't find anything. I have done sexual selection and parental investment but we barely even touched on parent-offspring conflict in class yet it seems to be a separate section in a couple of my textbooks.

    This is probably a dumb question but does research have to be supporting/opposing for it to count as AO2? Or can it just be any research done concerning the theory?
    For example if I say 'X used this idea to explain why this occurs', or 'Y studied this and also found this of the behaviour' is that only credited as AO1?

    Has anyone either finished psay3 completely or finished a section out of 3 from the paper, in terms of completing memorized essays from one section?

    Hi, thnx for ur predictions! Ive purchased all of ur booklets- they are great, I was looking at gender dysphoria and Im really confused- do we describe it as a biosocial approach? or do we do psychological and biological explanations seperately?- and is ur prediction just on the biosocial approach to gender development ie- moneys theory or gender dysphoria??

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Saj, do you have any knowledge about reductionism and determinism being only applicable to biological theories? As we had some debate about this and it seems reductionism only applies to bio theories other theories are seen as limited?
