Psychology Essay :Analyse The Use of Ethical Issues in Psychological Research

Mature student here, returned to education, doing a L3 access course (equivalent to A-levels)

Doing ethical issues on 3 studies (e.g little Albert, Stanford prision..) , aprox 1200 words . Could someone please give me some guidance on how to go about this, we have been told we must analyise and NOT describe, but I feel that Im describing instead. For ethics we can say what was good and bad , but i feel like i need a little guidance/example to get me on the right path. Many thanks.

Introduction should introduce the issue. Define ethical issues, give examples of some, and briefly introduce the research you'll be referring to
You'll need around 3/4 main points. You should briefly (in one sentence) summarise the studies you're speaking about, explain the ethical issues and then analyse why this was an issue, what the effects were of it etc
Conclusion should be a big summary of the issues, if there is one most severe issue, anything that could be done to avoid them etc.

Best to also contact your course leader/teacher etc. for help too.

And be rigorous about analysing not describing. Decide on your structure: e.g. whether you analyse by theme across all 3 studies, or each theme sequentially across all 3 studies in turn. Personally, I prefer to read analyses that address the content with dexterity and concision.
