Really, Aggression is hard but my teacher is WHACK and she is not very good.

Hello,  I'm studying Aggression, Relationships, and Eating behaviour.

What do we need to know with regards to eating behaviour?

I was taught about anorexia nervosa by a subteacher, but my resources are about obesity.

Confused dot com much? :l

Hey Adam! no need to be confused!

1st let me address your dilemma, you only have to know 1 eating disorder! study one very thoroughly and forget the other. so if you have recources on obesity then focus on that. dont waste time learning anorexia!

 ok so basically with regards to eating behaviour you need to know the following...

  • Attitudes to food AND factors effecting attitudes to food. you only have to know 2 factors, my strong factors are mood and culture. not sure the ones you've focused on.
  • social learning theory of eating behaviour
  • social cognition models of eating behaviour
  • biological explanations of eating behaviour (neuromechanisms and and evolutionary theory) you only have to know ONE of these! my advice would be to study one thouroughly and vaguely study the other.

and TWO MORE ...

  • Dieting (failure and success) Last seen June 2010
  • Eating disorders with biological and evolutionary explanations- Last seen Jan 2010

i have seperated these two because they are the least likely to appear on the test as they appreared last year!
