TAQ1 Perspectives and Behaviour

Post by Tracy37 »

Hi,
Don't know if anyone can give me some advice or tips for TAQ1 Psychological Perspectives and Behaviour. Im having trouble with the analysis of the perspectives to explain the causes of OCD

Any help would be appreciated as I feel really stuck !!

Hi Tracy
An analysis is a bit like an evaluation - you are making a judgement about something based on looking at its strengths and weaknesses
In this TAQ its a judgement about the way the perspective explains OCD. What is good about the explanation given by the perspective and what are the weaknesses of the explanation?
Reductionism and determinism are good points to use, find out what they mean and then think about how they link to the perspectives and explanations of OCD
Hope this helps :P
