Outline one principle or concept of the social area in
psychology. [2]


2 mark responses:
 e.g. Other people and the surrounding environment (1)
are major influences on an individual’s behaviour,
thought processes and emotions (1).
 e.g. Attempts to understand how the thoughts and
behaviours of individuals are influenced (1) by the
actual, imagined or implied presence of others (1).
 e.g. Provides a reductionist explanation of behaviour as
claims behaviour is mainly influenced (1) by the
presence of others (1).

 e.g. Bocchiaro et al introduced a new paradigm for
investigating the dynamic processes of disobedience
between individuals and unjust authority (1). They were
interested in investigating how individuals’ moral
decisions are influenced (1) by others, in this case an
authority figure who would put undue pressure on
individuals even when not physically present (1).
 e.g. Bocchiaro looks at the psychosocial processes
involved in reporting wrongdoing (1) to higher
authorities (1) which is another behavioural option for
individuals in the presence of unjust authority figures
whose morals may conflict with the majority’s (1).
 e.g. Bocchiaro et al are looking at the social nature of
variations in (dis) obedience (1). They used a form of
softer aggression than the physical violence paradigm
in Milgram’s research, and claimed that in modern
societies (1) verbal hostility is more typical than is
physical aggression in the relationships between
individuals and unjust authorities (1).

No problem haha! I couldn't find the markscheme for any of them but I have found some information to help you answer the first one, hope it helps.

- Milgram used an all-male sample,whereas, Bocchiaro et al used a student sample of males and females. Milgram used 40 males from the New Haven area of America, whereas Bocchiaro et al used 96 women and 53 men within their sample of participants.
-Bocchiaro’s study was more ethical than Milgram’s study. In Milgram’s study participants experienced physical and psychological distress- the right to withdraw was also limited by the experimenters prods. For example, the experimenter prods in Milgram’s’ study reduced the right to withdraw, and participants had actual seizures as a result of the psychological stress caused by believing they were administering electric shocks; participants in Bocchiaro et al’s study were directed to write a message, which was much less distressing, and no physical harm was caused.
