PSYCHOLOGY Hey I need help on the following psychology q

‘Outline and evaluate one explanation for OCD’ 16 marks

- I have already outlined (AO1) genetic explanations and evaluated my (AO3)

But do I bring in another explanation eg. Neron explanations for my other ao1 and ao3 points or just expand on genetic explanations

Thanks

Uhhh are you sure that’s what the question asked? Because if that’s what the question is asking then it should be an 8 marker instead since it’s asking for one explanation so you’re either talking about genetic explanations or neural explanations (not both) but if the question is asking “Describe and evaluate the biological approach to OCD” that’s when it should be a 16 marker and that’s when you should be talking about both

Yeah you could talk about both but you don’t have to. You’re supposed to talk about SSRIs since it’s asking for the treatment of OCD. My class did a 16 marker on this exact question in timed condition and my teacher gave me 14/16 and I didn’t really talk about neural explanations and genetic explanations, I only talked about SSRIs
