Hey,

Similarities
> I think both are reductionist approaches as they reduce behaviour down to single determinants. For behaviourists, this is environmental influences and for Psychodynamic, this is childhood experiences.
> They are both on the nurture side of the nature nurture debate so they fail to acknowledge biological influences.
> They both use case studies in research. An example for behaviourist is the study by Watson and Rayner where they use classical conditioning on Little Albert. An example for psychodynamic is Little Hans by freud which was used to support Freuds Oedipus complex

Differences
> I think behaviourists also use animal studies such as the ones on operant conditioning: they used bird to peck and would get reward. Also Pavlov and classical conditioning: they used a dog. As far as I'm concerned psychodymanic studies don't include animal studies.
> Psychodynamic approach is the only approach that has provided an insight into the unconscious whilst behaviourist approach does not.

sorry this is all I could remember from A levels 2 years ago so I'm not 100% sure if this is all correct. Just thought I'd help where I can. Good luck!
