Help with Addictive Behaviour? (A2 Psychology)

  • 0 votes

Okay, basically I failed my last exam (I did phobias and anomalistic) and this time around I decided to do addictive behaviour instead of anomalistic. I have three A2 books which I am using to practically teach myself and I'm going to look on here for as much information as I can gather BUT I was just wondering if anyone could recommended anything or send me any research or just any kinda advice. Please :3

addictive behaviour is HARD. Like proper hard. wouldnt recommend for anyone to teach themselves when it comes to addiction but if you are really gona do it, then well, i did it in Jan, i could help you if you needed. and i'd say making 24 marks model answers is the best way to revise. and dont predict which questions will come up. also, with addiction, its hard to memorise all the biological causes, so what i did was to draw images, really simple ones, alongside with words and small sentences to explain the causes. it also works with cognitive causes. 

hope it helps, if you need anymore help, feel free to message me :)

I'm studying addictive behaviour now too. It is always necessary to remember the initiation, maintenance and relapse within each model of addictive behaviour, with this i found it easy to portray these in flow charts. Other than that i also drew alot of images with words. But depends how you learn best, eg, i do visually. Also, remember as muuuuuuch A02/ evaluation as possible! i find it good to remember the main ones, like reductionist and deterministic and for this topic chemical. behaviour addictions and whether they apply or are a weekness (links to reductionism).

Biggest tip is to remember as much A02 as possible because the exam on addiction is mainly A02!!!
