Psychodynamic approach

- strength and limitation of psychodynamic approach
- defence mechanisms
Behavourist approach
- operant conditioning 16 marks

- writing directional hypothesis
- why it’s appropriate to use
- statistical tests
- observational design
- mean and standard deviation
- distribution
There’s more but I really can’t remember the rest
