currently on the access course...
one of my subjects is psychology which I have really struggled with I'm on my last assignment.
evaluate two areas of research
Attachment and attachment behaviour/theories of attachment learning & evolutionary
Types of attachment including cultural variations
700-800 word assignment
I'm struggling with getting distinctions and to get into my specific uni I need to get the grades and haven't got one distinction on this subject yet but have on all my other subjects.

You want to be including things like Bowlby and his ideas of monotropy and the critical period.
Ainsworth's Strange situation and attachment types and then Hazen and Shaver with attachments in later life or Main et al and Adult Attachment Interview.

Evolutionary would be Lorenz and imprinting and possibly Harlow's monkey study (the basic idea is that we need attachment for survival and it's innate)

and cultural variations would be Van ijzendoorns meta analysis of 8 countries or Rutter's Romanian orphanage study.

This is all from the top of my head, there's bound to be more.
Have a look through here:
