I'm doing an essay and I want to make a point about the generalisability of the effects of institutionalisation. Does anyone know whether Rutter's Romanian Orphans study has an idiographic or a nomothetic approach?

I would say Idiographic since it was longitudinal and collected very in-depth data about the subjects through interviews, observations etc. To me this sounds like quite a qualitative approach. It is hard because we don't exactly have all the details of his analyses etc. Some sources say he also collected things like ratings etc which would also suggest a nomothetic element.

That's what I was thinking too, thank you!!
