    Link CBT to the assumptions and go into detail (PEEL paragraphs)

    Outline: You would talk about Beck's Cognitive Triad (negative self schemas) and Ellis's ABC model (activating event, belief and consequence).

    Evaluation:
    >Application to therapy, used to develop effective treatments, challenge irrational thoughts etc.
    >Does not explain original of irrational thoughts as research are correlational based, does not tell us cause and effect
    >Research supporting these explanations
    >Alternative explanation e.g. biological approach, caused by genes and neurotransmitters. For example low levels of serotonin causes depression.

    Hope this helps

    I wouldn't evaluate just go into lots of detail

    So say what happens (outline) and how it links to the assumption (explain)

    It depends, I'm currently in A2 and it required evaluation in order to get top marks HOWEVER you do not need to include that many evaluation points. Around 2-3 depending on how well you evaluate.

    NO DO NOT LISTEN
    for an 8 marker you do have to evaluate i cant remember if its 4 marks a01(description) and 4 marks ao3(evaluation) or if its 2 marks ao3 and 6 marks ao1 but you definitely need to evaluate the theory for an 8 marker if however it was a 6 marker then that would just be purely ao1

    im guessing youre doing aqa psychology a level - i did this last year and was the first year to sit the new exams and achieved an a* so if you need any help message me + am selling both of my textbooks which I used for all of my revision if you are interested

    Would it make sense if I put this as my answer,
    The cognitive approach to treating depression could be done though Beck’s CBT, the aim of this theory is to help test the reality of their negative beliefs. The CBT has 3 main points; negative triad, negative self Schemas and faulty info processing. These all have an effect on the cognitive development of depression because they make all out thoughts think in a negative way. Faulty information processing blows small problems out of proportion and allows us to focus on the negative aspects of life. The self schemas change our information about ourselves into negative ways so we are always doubting ourselves and not focusing on the good hints about us. Negative triad focus on 3 things negative view of the world, ourselves and the future

    this is the revision guide i have that I used for my first year of a levels if you are interested, the same rule still applies with the A03 content though you need to evaluate using a point, example, evaluation and link back to the question structure

    thats fine however you should then know how to evaluate as it gives you an essay structure in that book for a 16 marker, and 8 marker is just half the content of it
