Edexcel A2 Psychology Criminological Psychology PowerPoint

Just a revision powerpoint that I made on the Edexcel A2 Psychology Unit 3 Crime chapter. Most of the specification is included, apart from the Pickel 1998, Charlton 2000, Anger Management and Token Economy. I hope you find this useful with revision as I did!!! This is a really good way to revise as taking info from resources and making them into one powerpoint or word document, uses semantic processing which enables higher levels of recall!!

Good Luck
